The fifth race of Kinsale Yacht Club’s cruiser White Sails October/November Series was won in IRC Fleet 1 by Stephen Lysaght’s Reavra Too, the boat’s first outing in the league.

Michael Carroll’s Chancer finished second and Valfreya (D.Riome & M.Leonard) was third. That result kept Valfreya top of the fleet on 7 points.

The second-placed Meridian (Thomas Roche) did not sail on Sunday but still holds second overall, though slipping to four points behind the leader. Sam Cohen’s Gunsmoke II is third on 13.

Padraig O’Donovan’s Chameleon was also a new competitor in the fifth race and was the only boat in IRC Fleet 2 and thus the winner. Patrick Beckett’s Miss Charlie remains top.

Kinsale Yacht Club is only a few minutes walk from every shop, hotel, pub and restaurant in Ireland’s gourmet capital but most significantly it is only 30 km by road from Cork, Ireland’s second city, and between the two lies one the region’s main assets - Cork International Airport - with its daily links to many European capitals.

Club members, of which there are more than 600, race Cruisers, One Design Keelboats and Dinghies.

The club runs inshore and offshore races, has an active cruising scene, a powerboat section and most significantly for any real club, a strong and dynamic junior training programme.

Beyond the club’s own marina is the club house itself and the dinghy park. Within the clubhouse are changing rooms, bar and restaurant all with full wheelchair access. The club’s full-time secretariat, steward and marina manager are there to look after sailing visitors and members alike in a relaxed, informal and fun environment.

The club welcomes new members and has always got room on its members’ yachts for new comers to the sport.
