Oh to be in Kinsale on a sunny Saturday with a breeze watching the wonderfully named Fagin, Outlaw, Slipstream, Allegro, Nimble and Kanaloa zipping around offshore marks battling like gladiators for best positions at windward and leeward, ducking and diving under the eagle eye of Race Officer Tony Small and his team aboard Destiny who got three races in... what a great first day.

Sunday turned out to be tougher for all with an overcast start followed by a sea mist later. Three races were once again sailed over a long day with boats finally alongside at 1600 with a crane awaiting to lift visitors ashore.

The nineteen boat fleet saw great competition with only four points separating first and fourth in the end after a discard.

Fagen (Royal NIYC - G. Patterson & R.Nolan) were overall winners by one point to Outlaw (Kinsale YC - I. Travers & K. O'Riordan) with Slipstream (Killyeagh YC - R. Marshall & B. Kelly) third, just ahead of Allegro (Kinsale YC - C. Dunne & F. Ward).

All agreed that it was a great test run for the Squib Nationals due to be held in Kinsale in late June 2020.
