Custom Rigging Frostbites at Kinsale Yacht Club - Day 4

by Dave O'Sullivan 24 Feb 21:29 GMT 24 February 2019

A south east lump with a 12 knot breeze (gusting to 18/20 knots later) greeted our competitors on the fourth morning of the Custom Rigging Frostbite series in Kinsale.

Race Officer John Stallard aboard Destiny (Bruce & June Matthews) laid a weather mark near the south east shore and a leeward mark close to Castlepark. Two windward-leeward races were sailed in boisterous conditions.

Squibs

The Squib fleet was led by Allegro (C Dunne & R Gill) who scored two firsts, Outlaw (I Travers & K O'Riordan) scored two seconds followed by Flora (B Nash & B Tullier) and Sensation (D & B Cudmore) who both scored a third each.

Lasers & Mixed Dinghies

Dorethy Matthews won the first race with Robert McGarvey second and Daniel Ackerlind third - all sailing Lasers. The second race, in more difficult conditions, was won by Dorethy Matthews with Kevin Daly second in a Flying Fifteen.

Toppers

Race one saw Hannah Ackerlind score a first with Rachel Ackerlind second - the positions were reversed in race two. Francesca Lewis got a third in both races.

It will all start again next Sunday 3rd March at 11am.
