Kinsale Yacht Club Commodore Cameron Good won the 15-boat Dragon South Coast Championships hosted by his own club in sunny conditions at the weekend.
Five races were held over two days with the overall results down to the final race in the warm up series for next week's staging of the prestigious Brewin Dolphin Dragon Gold Cup at Kinsale Yacht Club.
The home team of Cameron Good, Simon Furney and Henry Kingston fought off stiff competition from Gavia Wilkinson-Cox (UK) Andrew Craig and Neil Hegarty (Royal St. George, Dun Laoghaire) in a tightly fought contest.
Kinsale Yacht Club is now gearing up for the arrival of 65 dragons this week for the Gold Cup, with over 15 countries represented and several world-class sailors, ex-Olympians and current national and international title holders.
The Practice race is scheduled for 14.30hrs on Saturday 8th September, followed by the opening reception with Simon Coveney TD, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The first race is on Sunday 9th September at 12.00hrs.
