October Series 2015 – Update

October series has past the half way stage with 4 out of 6 races complete.  Hard to believe we lost 2 races last Sunday to “no wind” in October!  The PY series is being lead by Colman Grimes on 4 points followed by Cathal Sheridan on 10 and Sam Shiels on 12.  The Progressive series is also lead by Colman on 6 points with Shay O’Toole on 12 and Gerry Byrne on 12.5, somewhat closer.  Hopefully we will get in another 4 to 5 races over the next two days.  The Mermaid Club challenge after 4 races, and taking the top 4 boats from each club, sees SSC in the lead at 34 points with RSC with much to do at 76 points.

Sunday October 18thThe 4th of 5 days sailing in October series.

Racing continues with first gun at 11.00 sharp!  As the Ireland vs. Argentina match starts at 13.00 we plan to run 2 short races of c35 mins each max and be coming off the water no later than 12.35 .  This will require not only starting on time but a quick turnaround time between races. So stay alert!  Weather looks light at F3/3 NE.  (High water at 15.09)  Rescue support provided by Jean Horan/David Marshall/Eoin Kelly.
