A strong South East breeze provided the Matthews Helly Hansen Spring Series with two excellent races under the control of race officer Denis Kieran aboard White Tiger.

Race one got away promptly at noon with the round the cans course finishing at Charlesfort. Race two got away at 1330 sailing a longer course taking in Black Head. Only a few brave yachts flew spinnakers early in the day but the breeze decreased slowly from 24 Knots and the horizon was awash with spinnakers when the fleet came into Kinsale on the last leg of race three from centre point.

Denis Murphy's beautiful Grand Soleil 40 Nieulargo dominated Class One. Shane Stratham's evergreen GK 34 Slack Alice put in a fantastic performance in Class Two. Matt Hellstern's new arrival J/24 Headcase proved to be the fleet leader in Class Three. In White Sail KYC boats Paragon and Priviteer won a race each.

Competitors are reminded that race four FG is at the earlier time of 10.55HRS on Sunday 22nd with two races planned.
