Kinsale’s Yacht Club launched its Squib Early Summer Series, sponsored by Ballyhass Adventure Group, on Thursday, May 2nd.

Race Officers John and Valerie Stallard oversaw two races on a windward leeward course, testing sailors’ skills in light westerly winds.

In the first race, Flora, helmed by Bobby Nash and Una Leader, claimed victory, followed closely by Mucky Duck with Cliodhna Ni Shúilleabhain and Micheál O’ Súilleabhain.  Seán Murphy and Keith O’Riordan aboard Crackers took the win in the second race, with Mucky Duck securing second place once again.

Despite a shortened second race due to fading winds, the competition remained intense. With 5 more weeks of racing ahead, the series promises more excitement and close-fought battles on the water.

Stay tuned for updates on this thrilling sailing event in the Squib class at Kinsale Yacht Club!
