The Royal Cork Yacht Club (RCYC) of Crosshaven received high praise for running Sunday’s Autumn League during a ‘weather window’ in Cork Harbour, bringing the fleet home before a blow of wind hits the Cork area, which was so strong that it caused severe damage and severe flooding.
The race plan involved starting an hour earlier and racing inside the harbour.

The race was also part of the South Coast Offshore Racing Association’s annual league series.
SCORA Treasurer Michael Murphy, who took part in the race, was impressed with the quality of the organization and the safety measures taken to complete the race safely.
He’s my Podcast guest this week, where we discuss the importance of good on-water race communications, different race officiating standards and the likelihood of more offshore races on the calendar. of SCORA for next year.
