#TEAM RACING – Hosts Schull made a clean sweep of the prizes at a breezy edition of the Irish Schools Team Racing Championships 2012 sailed in West Cork last weekend (21st/22nd April) with 12 teams from Munster, Leinster and Connaught taking part.
The National Championships were raced in West Cork's own new TR3.6 dinghies.
Only 20 races took place on Saturday due to an increase in wind strength during the day. Racing was planned to start at 09.00 hours on Sunday morning but again due to wind strength sailing had to be delayed until midday.
After 47 races and a looming deadline to meet it was decided to race the three teams that had won all their races off against each other as they had not met in the round robin stages.
Schull 1, Schull 2 and CBC, Rochestown were all in with a chance depending on the results of these races. Schull 1 were eventual winners with Schull 2 runners up and CBC coming third.
Places for the other teams were as follows:
