ACCBank Cork Week - Day 3

by Media on 17 Jul 2008
A finely balanced leader-board at the front of the Super Zero class at ACCBank Cork Week was outcome of the third day of racing that sees Niklas Zennstrom`s TP52 'Ran' maintain a one-point lead over Dan Meyer`s Judel Vrolijk 66 'Numbers'. Both boats had a win apiece on the Windward-Leeward course in the light airs.

On the same course, Richard Matthews` GP42 'Oystercatcher XXVI' has extended its lead of Class Zero leaving Dun Laoghaire entry 'Tiamat' in second place. The Mills 43 features a Cork afterguard with Maurice O`Connell and Mark
Mansfield joining owner Tim Costello for the week.

The single event discard that kicked in after five races saw Dave Dwyer`s 'marinerscove.ie' move into the lead of 21-boat Class One following a consistent day with a third and second places.

Elsewhere in the 26 classes, the entire fleet of J109`s was reinstated following Tuesday`s Harbour Course that saw the 26 boats scored as Did Not Finish when the five-hour race time limit expired. The solution was later agreed between the race committee and the International Jury following the 36-mile race.

Racing continues on Thursday with Fleet D for the Beneteau 31.7 and IRC handicap classes 4, 5 and 6 competing on the Harbour Course. Weather forecasts suggest slightly fresher winds while Friday`s finale may see a return of the 20+ knot winds for the big boats turn at the acclaimed Slalom course.
