Perfect sailing conditions off Sherkin Island today with a steady 12-16 knot breeze provided champagne conditions for Mark Mansfield and Terry English and the crew onboard Gut Rut to secure the championship with a 10 point lead and a race to spare.  

Denis Murphy from RCYC on Aquatack won the first race of the day and Gut Rot won the second while Nicholas O’Leary onboard T-Bone owned by Crosshaven duo Tom Durcan and Clive O’Shea won the final race in the series.
Neil Angle from Brighton YC was the top UK boat finishing 8th. 

Commenting on his win, Mark Mansfield said ‘It was a tremendous event with a very strong tough field sailed in ideal conditions and well organised by Baltimore Sailing Club. No quarter was given nor expected and I think everyone had great sailing over the three days. I have to pay special tribute to my part owner Terry English and the crew, Mike Budd, Joe Bruen and Bernard Fitzpatrick. It was a fantastic showpiece for the 1720 class which is building in numbers significantly.’

Mark Mansfield holds the lead after six races at the 1720 Corona Euro Championships in Baltimore, West Cork. Nicholas O’Leary onboard T-Bone owned by Crosshaven duo Tom Durcan and Clive O’Shea is now in second place having discarded an ocs from yesterday and father Anthony is in third on the same number of points.

Testing conditions off Sherkin today with strong tides and 12-14 knot winds. Three further races in the series were completed despite a bit of a delay for resetting the course between Races 5 and 6. 

Race Officer David O’Brien commented ‘Races were longer than yesterday and that made racing more testing for the competitors. There were no black flags today although there was a general recall. Racing is on schedule to complete the championship tomorrow.’

Current 1720 National Champion Mark Mansfield leads the 1720 Corona Euro Championships in Baltimore after a long day close sailing in steady 10-14 knot conditions.

The 28 strong fleet completed three races off Sherkin Island and Mark Mansfield started the day well with the first bullet. 
It was a reasonably good day for the O’Leary father and son who are competing against one another. Son Nicholas is onboard T-Bone owned by Crosshaven duo Tom Durcan and Clive O’Shea, having been a close second in the first race he was ocs in the second but went on to win the final race of the day. Anthony meanwhile is lying second over night with a 3, 1, 11 record and local team Peter O’Flynn and John Crotty is second overnight with a consistent 4,4,5.

Race Officer David O’Brien commented on today’s racing ‘Conditions were light with strong tides affecting the racing throughout the day. Thankfully wind held fairly steady and we were able to complete the three races with just one general recall’ 

First gun tomorrow and Saturday is at 1055 with nine races scheduled for the series.
