City of Cape Town winner of ACCBank Cork Week

'Laser SB3 at ACCBank Cork Week 2008'   

Champagne sailing conditions returned to ACCBank Cork Week for Friday’s finale that saw City of Cape Town sailed by South Africans Dave and Steve Hudson collect the overall Boat of the Week trophy for their win in the 40-strong Laser SB3 event.

Dave Hudson runs a Sailing School in Cape Town and is a veteran Fireball sailor who only recently turned his hand to the Laser SB3. The class will hold its first World Championship in Ireland later this year when 150 boats are expected on Dublin Bay.

In addition to the 26 class winners, trophies were also awarded to Jonathan Anderson’s Playing FT$E who received the inaugural Sisk Group Corinthian Cup in Class Zero while Niklas Zennstrom’s Ran won the Carroll Cup for his win of the TP52 class. Agne Nilsson’s Fortis Excel was awarded the Prix d’Elegance.

Final results were close across most of the classes and none more so than the Super Zero division that saw Dan Meyers’ Numbers win on tie-break when Niklas Zennstrom’s Ran was awarded redress after a starting-time error that tied both boats for the overall win.

Several classes held their week-long leads. Although none were on board due to eligibility rules, the impact of professional sailors was credited with one victory. 'Having pros on the boat has sharpened up our game but without them this week we’re very happy with the win but must thank them for improving our performance, said Dave Dwyer, owner of the Class One winner.

Meanwhile, in Class 5 IRC, series leader Barry Rose on Obsession VI slipped to second place following a series-win by Corby 25 sister-ship Kinetic owned by Richard Colwell. And in the Corporate Class, Peter Newlands’ Beneteau 40.7 produced the best score across the entire 410-strong entry list with a perfect nine straight wins record.
