Flying Fifteen European Championships 2008


Many people might think you need representatives from a fleet to be members and active in your club to host a major championships, but that never stopped the powerhouse of racemanagement that is Kinsale Yacht Club! As well as regularly hosting regional championships for classes that want a break from racing in the same old waters, KYC host many major international events on their stretch of water and the Flying Fifteen European Championships are just the latest!

Racing just a short distance from the mouth of Kinsale harbour the fleet have been subjected to the best the Irish 'summer' could throw at them with showers and sunshine being dished out in equal measure but unpredictable order. The breeze was much more reliable and favourable though as it swept in from the west to give close competitive and exhausting racing to the large multinational fleet.
