Royal Cork Yacht Club Admiral Colin Morehead was aboard Royal Cork's Jap for some pre-race preparations before next Saturday's big race from Cobh to Blackrock. 

'She's So light, so responsive, an absolute joy to sail' was the verdict from the Admiral as the immaculately restored but engineless Cork Harbour One Design was put through its paces just south of Spike Island.

As Afloat previously reported the yacht that has been gifted to RCYC was originally built in Cork Harbour at Carrigaloe in 1897.

Jap is stored ashore by RCYC in its own special container and launching trailer. Plans are afoot to introduce more people to the historic craft over the course of the winter and next season.
