After four alternate weekends of racing, attracting 10 boats at various stages, the final weekend promised light airs and a chance for three boats to win the coveted 'Aberech Bowl'.
With Peter Dunlop and Vicky Cox, away in Ireland with J109 "Mojito", the Cork 1720 "Mojito Bach" was raced by Dave Picken. Glenn Pritchard finally got his 1720 "Mayhem" onto the water for the final weekend of races, with Eleri and Brooky from "Luvly Jubbly" 1720 onboard. The two J80's "Harley Quinn", Richard Cooks "Jezebel" and J111 "Sgrech" completed this weekends entry list.
Saturday dawned brightly, and PRO Robn Evans ran three short races with winds never much over 5kts. 1720 "Mayhem" took three fine wins ahead of "Harley Quinn", a fantastic start to Glenn's 1720 campaign. The results meant going into the final day, with Dave Hughes and "Legless Again" missing this weekend, it would be between "Harley Quinn" and "Sgrech" for the overall title.
Sundays race 1 was a 7.5 mile 9 mark windward leeward, starting with 5-6 kts of southerly wind, but forecast to fill in to 10kts later, out in the bay. With the pin end biased, and all boats jostling for a clear lane "Mayhem" did a great job of pushing "Sgrech" and "Mojito Bach" over the line early. "Harley Quinn" stayed away from this Melee and sailed a fine race to take the race win, ahead of "Mayhem and "Sgrech".
