HYC boats dominated the prizes at Malahide Yacht Club's annual Cruiser Regatta on Saturday 21st July. Thirty boats and crews competed in ideal conditions, with steady southerly winds and a flat sea prevailing for the two-race series.
The J/24s and Puppeteers raced on windward-leeward courses while Cruisers 1, 2, 3 and White Sails did triangular courses, set by race officer Brian McDowell.
The combined Class 1 & 2 fleet was won by Pat Kelly's 'Storm' (HYC) while local boat 'Goyave' (Camier/Fitzpatrick) took the honours in Class 3 on IRC (with two wins) and also finished runner-up to HYC's 'Sunchaser' (Michael Marr) on ECHO.
Richard McAllister's 'Force Five' from Howth won the White Sails class on IRC and Malahide boat 'Turnabout' (David Haisley & others) headed the ECHO rankings.
In the two one-design classes, Emmet Dalton's 'Jebus' headed the J/24 fleet and Neil Murphy's 'Yellow Peril' topped the Puppeteer division.
