Denmark in Lead After an Exciting First Day.

22 October, 2008

Following earlier events in Italy, New Zealand, France and India, the action for the latest Regional Final of the 2009 ISAF Nations Cup has moved to the South Coast of Ireland.

The nine nations set out in near perfect conditions with 10-14 knots of breeze, freshening slightly in the afternoon.

The Irish team, skippered by John SHEEHY requested redress from the International Jury in Flight 4 Match 4, and it was granted with a re-sail ordered.

With a low pressure system rapidly approaching from the Atlantic and winds forecast from the south west gusting over 40 knots, both the teams and spectators would be hoping for it to blow through early and give a second day of exciting racing in the harbour.
