Beneteau 31.7 Irish Nationals at HYC
Author: John Deane Posted on: 2/9/07 Print Version

Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September at HYC

PRO, Peter McKenna ran the full schedule of 5 races, 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday in 10 to 12 Kt NW'ly winds. Bright weather dominated both days, however during the last race on Sunday a shower swept across the area and reduced visibility somewhat.

In the first race on Saturday a few boats were late starters when the race started precisely on time. Everyone was a little over enthusiastic at the start of the 2nd and 3rd races, so the Black Flag was flown, which helped to settle the starts.

Sunday saw another good day's racing with 2 races. All 5 races were each about 1 hour duration.

The top 5 in each category are ...
