Royal Cork J109 ‘Jelly Baby’ Wins Kinsale Yacht Club/SCORA Fastnet Race – Afloat


Have you considered !

It was a one, two overall for the J109 design in this weekend's Kinsale Yacht Club SCORA Fastnet Race. 
Royal Cork yacht Jelly Baby claimed a victory in a corrected time of 21 hours: 13 minutes: 26 seconds from the host club's Artful Dodger (Finbarr O'Regan) on 21: 24: 34 corrected in a race that was shortened due to light winds.
The defending champion Nieulargo, a Grand Soleil 40, finished third on a corrected time of 21: 36: 02

As Afloat reported yesterday, after a well-timed postponement the nine-boat Kinsale Yacht Club SCORA Fastnet Race got away in a great breeze at 10 am on Saturday morning for its annual offshore race.
