Skerries Regatta 2015

Our annual Regatta went off successfullylast weekend (July 18th/19th July)  Thanks to the support of very many members all races were run to schedule.  The weekend started with 5 brave Skerries Cruisers battling their way to Howth for the M Davis Cup (Sapphire series) in winds over F6.  Sean Davis won in a two hour race by less than a minute on corrected time from Declan Higgins.  They were closely followed by Jim Boylan, Aidan Boylan and Paul Harrison.  Well done to all.

The traditional Howth to Skerries race commenced proceedings on Saturday with 14 boats taking part.  With a strong southerly winds the leading competitors reached Sherries just after 13.00 hrs.  Howth boats took all hours with Peter Dunlop of Mojito collecting the Rockabill Cup.  Dinghies completed two races in continuing strong winds.  Fortunately Sunday saw lighter winds.
