TBSC Keelboat Regatta 11-12 Jun 2016 Click for Notice Of Race


Sailing in Tralee for the 2016 season commenced on the 26th April in what could only be described as winter conditions with temperatures barely rising above 80C and often much colder taking into account wind chill. This inclement start to the sailing season, together with boats still undergoing repair and maintenance and Liam Lynch’s Powder Monkey sailing down in Kinsale may have been a reason why so few boats were at the start line for race 1 and the other early races of the series.
Race 1 and Race 2 went the way of Furgus Kelliher’s “Jibe” on IRC and to Dan Counihan’s “Galileo” on ECHO. Race 3 saw Raphael Crowley’s “Huntress”, complete with his new sail inventory, take to the water for the first time, but results remained as in race 1 and 2. By race 4 “Boojum” had joined the fray but the status quo remained with, the well organised “Jibe” clinching IRC for the series and “Galileo” likewise in ECHO. With one race abandoned due to high wind the final race was sailed in something resembling summer weather, and the fleet expanded to 6 boats with the return of “Powder Monkey” to Fenit and “Wild Thing making its debut. The final race saw “Powder Monkey” take the honours in both IRC and Echo, with “Galileo” in second place.

Fergus Kelliher (winner IRC), Louis Byrne (SPAR Tralee), Dan Counihan (winner ECHO)
Ronan, a student doing his Masters, sent this in to TBSC. It's a short survey that won't take long but it is important that all lifejacket users take the time to fill it out. Only by completing these surveys can future developments be made in this area. It sounds really interesting and it could be a huge breakthrough in water safety and rescue.
Promise it won't take long.
