'Presumptuous' east coast crews given a lash

Sailing: as the irish season got underway earlier this week at kinsale yacht club's april league, one of ireland's best known….

SAILING: As the Irish season got underway earlier this week at Kinsale yacht club's April League, one of Ireland's best known sailing administrators has strongly criticised east coast racing crews.

Donal McClement of the Royal Cork yacht club says there is little or no interest in a major offshore racing event this summer. What interest there is appears centred on the Admiral's Cup, an event beyond the ability of most domestic racing crews, he adds.

This week's event in Kinsale saw the nucleus of a SCORA (South Coast Offshore Racing Association) team limber up for a full Rolex Commodore's Cup campaign that culminates in Cowes this August. McClement is Team Manager and also a committee member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) that organises both the Commodore's and Admiral's Cup events.

"I am very disappointed that there is zero interest on the east coast, specifically Dublin Bay," he says. "I am amused at the superior attitude from some Dublin Bay sailors who have no interest in Commodore's Cup but yet think they can enter Admiral's Cup.

"This is presumptuous and in fact stupid as you don't win at Admiral's Cup level if you can't win at club level."

McClement says the Commodore's Cup is an ideal tester for a club-level crew considering a major campaign.

"Are we on the pace or are we off the pace?" is the question he poses. "I suspect it would be the latter in most cases. However, any (Commodore's Cup or similar) event experience is worth 100 days on Dublin Bay or even three seasons of racing in your own waters.

"The other aspect is that the Commodore's Cup is a relatively inexpensive way of seeing if you have a chance or are simply living in cloud-cuckoo land."

Two SCORA crews have begun training on the Beneteau 40.7 footers that form the basis of the three-boat SCORA team. The Commodore's Cup is aimed squarely at leading club level crews from around the world and was introduced to offset increasing professional involvement in the Admiral's Cup.

The next Admiral's Cup is due to be held in Dún Laoghaire in July 2003 and will have two boats per team, comprising a semi-professional IMS600 class boat of around 40 feet plus a fully-professional big boat of at least 50 feet. Both events will permit two teams per country.

The SCORA approach is to introduce talented young south-coast sailors to a new level of competition and intensity, both afloat and in team preparation.

The selection by McClement of two Beneteau 40.7s, both IMS-dedicated boats, strongly suggests the main objective is 2003 in Dún Laoghaire.

Nevertheless, only SCORA has started a campaign in spite of a larger pool of potential team boats based in Dublin. An ideal Dublin-based Commodore's Cup team as a preparation for The Admiral's Cup might comprise three "one-off" boats such as Roy Dickson's Cracklin' Rosie, Bob Stewart's Azure and Colm Barrington's Gloves Off.

All three have undergone winter modifications and Gloves Off produced a second place in last weekend's Red Funnel Easter series at Cowes. IRC handicap ratings will be revised as a consequence of these modifications and a potential second Irish team may depend on the final certification of each.

Azure's Bob Stewart told The Irish Times yesterday that he would be pleased to participate in a Commodore's Cup team. "We certainly are not interested (in Admiral's Cup)," he said. "I'd be quite cynical about it due to the enormous costs involved."

Dún Laoghaire 40.7 owner Oliver Sheehy commented that while the Admiral's Cup looks more interesting and he would like to trial for team selection, he would have difficulty with the professional element to the Admiral's Cup.

"Whether or not I'd change from being a Corinthian - probably not," he said. "I couldn't countenance having paid hands on board."

Meanwhile, Clayton Love Junior, a leading light of Ireland's best Admiral's Cup years in the 1970s will receive honorary membership of the Irish Sailing Association this weekend at the a.g.m. at the Royal St George yacht club.

Toni Cacace got delighted with the performance of his team who also turned out as winner of the Wally Class, owner of the Wally 94 Magic Blue. Despite being the only boat in the 11-strong class participating in the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup for the first time.

Conflict Over Super Yacht Release

The super yacht S/Y a having been seized by the Bay of Gibraltar has brought much interest and intrigue in the sailing world. Indeed, the fact that the shipbuilding yard released the vessel only to get it seized and arrested does raise questions.

This is also sounded in the words of the owner that have been released in public media through his representative. These words show surprise in the way the shipbuilder has acted, especially a company that has a standing and reputation like Nobiskrug. The arrest of this sailing yacht is being viewed with disappointment by the customer. Continue reading Conflict Over Super Yacht Release →

NOR PUBLISHED AND ONLINE ENTRY OPENS FOR KINSALE YACHT CLUB DRAGON GOLD CUP 2024

kinsale yacht club april league

Sixty plus teams are expected to participate in the prestigious Dragon Gold Cup, which was first presented to the International Dragon Class by the Clyde Yacht Clubs Association (then known as the Clyde Yacht Clubs Conference) in 1937, with the aim of bringing together competitors from as many countries as possible to compete in a friendly spirit. Over its 87-year history the Dragon Gold Cup has continued to combine a world class racing programme with outstanding camaraderie and hospitality.

The Irish in general and Kinsale in particular are renowned for their hospitality, and so it comes as no surprised that this will be the third time that Kinsale Yacht Club has hosted the Gold Cup, the first in 1977 and again in 2012. As always, the club will be pulling out all the stops and the organising committee, chaired by Maeve Cotter, looks forward to welcoming Dragon sailors from upwards of 20 nations around the globe for what promises to be an exceptional week.

Registration and equipment inspection will take place from Thursday 5 to Friday 7 September and on Saturday 7 September there will also be a warmup race to allow competitors to familiarise themselves with Kinsale’s outstanding open water race area. Championship racing will be run from Sunday 8 to Friday 13 September.

The Dragon Gold Cup is famed for being one of the most challenging inshore keelboat regattas in the world. Although the Race Committee may adjust the programme if races are lost, just one race per day is scheduled and the races are run over a very large windward/leeward course with leg lengths of 2 miles or more. In addition, there is no discard in the series scoring, so every place counts, consistency is all and even a minor gear failure or tactical misstep can have devastating consequences for a team.

The boats will race as one fleet, but in addition to the overall Gold Cup prizes, which are open to all entrants, there will also be prizes for the top Corinthian, all amateur, crews.

Online Entry is now open with a special Early Bird entry fee of €850 for those who enter by no later than 30 June 2024. From 1 July the entry fee will be €950 and entry will close on 26 August 2024. Competitors wishing to enter the Corinthian competition must submit their full crew lists with confirmation of the World Sailing ID and valid G1 categorisation for each crew member by 7 September 2024. The entry fee includes craning in and out, trailer parking, berthing, and tickets to the Gold Cup Gala Dinner and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for all members of the crew.

History of KYC

KYC WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1953

Kinsale Yacht Club (KYC) was established in 1953. The club was first located in two cottages opposite the slip at Scilly, across the harbour from the current location and the first Commodore was John H. Thuillier.

The current clubhouse was purchased in the early 1960’s; Dick Hegarty oversaw the purchase as the Club solicitor. Over the decades the Club has been extended with the most recent refurbishment in 2013.

In 1978, the Club and its members funded and built the first marina. The Marina was extended in 2003 to its current layout.

Sailing & Racing

By the mid-1950’s, there were six boats racing in the club comprising of a dragon called ‘Sleuth’, two colleens, ‘Pinkeen’ and ‘Spalpeen’, an Uffa Ace, Dick Hegarty’s cruiser ‘Bedouin’ and a jollyboat sailed by the 70-year old Commodore Brigadier General Dorman. Jeanot Petch made an exotic addition to the already varied fleet when he built a Prout catamaran in 1957.

The fleet would leave the Bulman Buoy to port or starboard according to the wind, as the Commodore did not want to gybe that far out to sea! Later a 45 gallon drum was placed upriver and used as an upwind mark until the new bridge was built in the 1970’s. All the boats at that time were kept on swing moorings in the river. The Cork Harbour Dragon Fleet, based in the Royal Munster Yacht Club in Crosshaven, now the Royal Cork Yacht Club, moved to Kinsale.

Over time, dinghy fleets of Albacores, Mirrors, Flying Fifteens, Fireballs and Enterprises developed and junior sailing instruction began. Junior sailing now encompasses Optimists, Lasers and Toppers. One design racing takes place weekly  in International Dragons and Squibs. Cruiser Classes I, II, III & White Sail also race weekly.

Championships

HOST OF VARIOUS CHAMPIONSHIPS

In the 1970’s, the Club started hosting Regional and National Championships. In 1977 the club hosted the World Fireball Championships and the Dragon Gold Cup and started to develop its widely recognised race management teams. Here are some of the Championships KYC has hosted:

1984 – Flying Fifteen World Championships 1998 – Mirror European Championships 2003 – Dragon Europeans 2008 – Squib National Championships 2008 – Flying Fifteen European Championships 2012 – Dragon Gold Cup 2013 – IFDS World Championships 2014 – Dragon National Championships 2015 – Optimist Munster Championships 2016 – Squib National Championships 2016 – Dragon National Championships 2016 – Topper Munster Championships 2017 – Dragon South Coast Championships 2017 – Half Ton Classic Cup 2017 – 1720 European Championships 2018 – President’s Cup & Hanse National Championships 2018 – Optimist National Championships 2019 – 1720 European Championships 2019 – Dragon National Championships 2019 – Half Ton Cup 2020 – Laser Munster Championships 2021 – Squib Southcoast Championship 17 – 18 July 2021 – Dragon National Championship 2 – 5 Sept Solitaire du Figaro on 19 occasions from 1974 Sovereigns cup biannually since 1995
