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 18th – The 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.
