Weekend 19th/20th September – Racing

This weekend see the Junior Section run their delayed 2015 Junior Regatta on Saturday 19th.  All support appreciated.  Hopefully the yard and car park will be full of young sailors for most of the day.  If not involved please come along anyway and watch the event and partake in Donal’s finest renowned BBQ cuisine – steaks plus extras for €10 – starting at 17.00hrs.

With only two weeks left in the dinghy calendar there are a number of trophies as mentioned in the last newsletter, to be decided.  Weather permitting here is the plan:

Sunday 20th September

Race to the Rock and back for the Tommy Rooney (all dinghies) and McIntyre (GPs).  If weather does not permit this race we will have two bay races – the first will be for the Murphy Cup (brought forward from Sunday Sept 27th) and the second will include the Smyco trophy (female helm) and the Gun Club trophy for traipse boats (assuming that there are sufficient competitors).  1st gun regardless is 10.45 for cruisers and 11.00 for dinghies.  Forecast is F4/5 S.  Rescue supplied courtesy of Martin O’Brien/ Monica Alcock/Daniel Owens/Harry Boylan/Andrew Sexton

Looking forward to Sunday 27th September

If the Rock race does not go ahead on the 20th we will attempt to run it on this date.  Failing that we will have two bay races as – race 1 will be for the Murphy Cup and race 2 will include the May Cup (to south strand) for mermaids, and the Gun Club trophy for trapeze boats and Smyco trophy.

All a bit rushed as the regular season comes to an end.  However if we do not get the Rock race in we will look to use one of the October dates to rerun.  All comments/suggestions to Kieran at 0879849813.  Enjoy your sailing.
