A strong SW breeze greeted our competitors on the third morning of the Custom Rigging Frostbite series in Kinsale.

Race Officer John Stallard assisted by Michele Kennelly (welcome back) and Siobhan Keane Hopcraft aboard Destiny (Bruce & June Matthews) decided that the wind was far too strong for the Toppers who were promptly sent home. The tenacious Squibs started on time at 1100hrs followed five minutes later by the very competitive Laser fleet. After one race both fleets were heading for home as the wind-speed had increased to 25 knots. Everybody was ashore before 1300hrs.

Squibs

The Squib fleet was led by Badger (J Condell & J Corchrane) with Allegro (C Dunne & R Gill) second and Sensation (D & B Cudmore) third. Sensation just pipped Outlaw (I Travers & K O'Riordan) at the finish line with Outlaw having to tack off at the last second as Sensation came through on Starboard.

Squib Results after 7 Races:

1st Allegro
2nd Badger
3rd Outlaw

Lasers

The tough conditions suited the more experienced sailors and the five boat Fleet was led by Dorethy Matthews with Tiarnan Brown second and Rory Carroll third.

Laser Results after 6 Races:

1st Dorethy Matthews
2nd Robert McGarvey
3rd Rory Carroll

It will all start again next Sunday 17th at 1100hrs.

Series results can be found here.
