Quarter Tonners at the Sovereign's Cup, Kinsale
- Monday, 01 July 2013 23:25
Four intrepid explorers went to Kinsale last week to race in this fabulous little regatta in the gourmet capital of Ireland, Kinsale. Their wrap article described the class:
The Quarter tonners had their fair share of excitement over the regatta. Getting these boats downwind in big breeze and rolling seas with the rig pointing in roughly the right direction is no mean feat, as Sam Laidlaw's Aguila displayed excellent crew work and skill to take the class win. Tony Hayward on Black Fun was second with Rob Gray on Cote third on count back from Willie McNeill's Illegal Immigrant.
Well done to those four boats for traveling and to the Irish contingent who made this class happen.
