Sail-World.com : ACCBank Cork Week day 1

ACCBank Cork Week day 1

Light to moderate winds graced the 410 entries at ACC Bank Cork Week for the opening day of racing in Ireland's biennial celebration of sailing. There were full results across all 26 classes with light airs tactics proving decisive.

However light airs and tricky tides didn't prove lucky for the big-boat glamour entries of the Super Zero fleet that saw a clutch of Transpac 52-footers emerge best of the bunch. The 15-strong class was sailing the scenic Cork Harbour course today.

The Stuart Robinson steered Stay Calm with Ray Davies calling tactics took the first bullet of the series while George David¹s 90-foot Rambler will have to wait for a more forgiving course later in the week to show off her waterline prowess and straight-line speed.

Amongst the IRC-handicapped classes that do not permit professional crews, it was a day for clear air starts and careful wind-shift calls. Each class is sailing a different course type each day, ranging from Slalom and Olympic to standard windward-leeward and trapezoid.

Class 1 IRC overnight leader, Nigel Passmore's J133 Apollo from Plymouth placed fifth and first yesterday. Tactician Adrian Gray commented: 'It was a day for concentrating in the fickle conditions and we¹re delighted to have come out on top.'

Local knowledge and experience weren't an advantage in the light airs as former Royal Cork YC Admiral Barry Rose on Corby 25 Obsession VI leads Class 5 IRC thanks to second and first placings yesterday. 'The course today was out in open sea and local knowledge wasn¹t in play,' said Rose.

A cold front is due to pass over the south coast of Ireland overnight bringing up to Force 4 winds in the harbour area and possibly stronger further offshore.
