The ICRA National Championships 2011 have now come to a close at the Royal Cork Yacht Club.

Following the excitement and thrills of bumps and spills yesterday (Saturday) the final day of racing turned out to be a beautiful sun filled day with a breeze of seven to eight knots with 10 max and with the sea still retaining somewhat of a small chop', but providing another magnificent days sailing. 

Divisions Zero, One and Two with Race Officer Peter Crowley were sailing windward/leeward courses almost out to the Daunt while Divisions Three, Four and Non Spinnaker sailed off Trabolgan with Race Officer Richard Leonard.  All fleets completed their full schedule of racing.


Anthony O’Leary’s Antix took the overall in Division 0 followed in second place by Gloves Off who was sailing very well today and had a win to take her to second. Conor Phelan’s Jump Juice took third place.


Division One IRC was won by Pat Kelly’s Storm who enjoyed five wins in the series and could not be beaten. Second placed was Robert O’Leary in Antix Beag followed by Ian Nagle and Paul O’Malley’s Jelly Baby on equal points.


Division Two IRC was won by Brian Goggin’s Allure, formerly Kinetic with Raymond McGibney’s Disaray second followed by Vinnie O’Shea in Yanks $ Ffrancs.


After the ding dong battle of the week Division Three  was won by the Kenefick/O’Brien Tiger, followed by Eamonn Rohan’s Anchor Challenge helmed by Ian Travers and the New Zealand Visitor Jamie McDowell in Black Fun.

Division four IRC was won by Sundancer followed by Michael Sexton’s Granny Knot.


The Non Spinnaker Division was very competitive and was dominated by Conor O’Donovan’s X-tension who was a worthy winner followed by John Downing’s Samba and Conor McNeice’s Minx 111.

ICRA Commodore, Barry Rose, in his final words to the competitors after the prizegiving reminded them the next ICRA National Championships will be held at Howth Yacht Club in June 2012.
