The International Schools Team Racing Championships sailed in Schull, West Cork at the weekend was a huge success, with the event being the first time this number of schools from the United States, England and Ireland had competed together in Team Racing.

15 teams sailed in ideal conditions;  winter switched off and summer switched on.

The event was tightly fought for between Schull Sharks and Presentation Brothers Cork from Munster and Tabor Academy and Cape Cod Academy from the United States, all taking races from each other.

The final outcome was not known until the second last race, when Cape Cod Academy lost to Tonbridge college from the UK allowing PBC through as the overall winners.

2nd Cape Cod (USA)
3rd Tabor Academy (USA)
4th Schull Sharks (Ireland)
5th International (Ireland & USA)
6th Tonbridge college (England)
