Laser World Masters Championships
Cork

A record fleet of 320 Laser masters sailors provided a fine sight in Cork Harbour today in what is the biggest single class fleet ever to sail in Ireland.

A forecast of strong winds persuaded the race organisers at the Royal Cork Yacht Club to sail the first day's racing of two races in the harbour rather than send the fleet out to sea.

The forecast strong winds never materialised but the 15 to 20 knot south westerly winds that prevailed provided a good days racing.

The total fleet is split into four categories each racing for separate prizes; Apprentices aged 35 to 44 years old, Masters 45 to 54 years old, Grand Masters 55 to 65 years old. A separate Radial fleet for lighter weight sailors also includes 20 Great Grand Masters aged over 65.
