Top performing Cork Quarter tonner, Dom Losty’s ‘Illes Pitiuses’ has won the seven boat Irish Quarter Ton Championships at Howth Yacht Club. High winds in Howth yesterday meant that the final day’s racing in the Euro Car Parks East Coast Championships and Quarter Ton Cup was cancelled and the positions after Saturday’s exciting 3 races stood as final results.
This well attended event offered the many competitors and visitors from all around the country excellent and highly competitive racing.
The Class 3 racing was dominated by the J24s including ‘J Guevara’, ‘Scandal’ and IRC and ECHO winner ‘Hard on Port’ skippered by Flor O’Driscoll.
Howth’s Anthony Gore Grimes and his crew on ‘Dux’ beat Paddy Kyne’s ‘Maximus’ by just one point in Class 2 but ‘Maximus’ won the ECHO prize.
The Team Trophy was won by the Class 3 entries: Hard on Port, Tiger Nathan Kirwan Trust and Anchor Challenge.
At the prize giving, event organiser Eddie Bourke thanked the race management team for their skill in managing Saturday’s racing, as well as Euro Car Parks for their generous sponsorship and remarked on the terrific number of entries in what was a very successful event for the Class 2, Class 3 and Quarter Ton boats.
