Sovereigns Cup 2011

Purely as an experiment (and to have fun!) we put a full crew on Dinah for the Sovereigns Cup in Kinsale. We acheived our goal of having fun… but from a results point of view sadly we proved the adage that offshore boats shouldn’t do inshore regattas.

Crew work was superb given that we’d never sailed together before, and only Barry had ever sailed the boat before. Thanks again to Barry Hurley (skipper & helm), Keith Kiernan (nav & tactics), John Scott (main trim), Luca Zoccoli (jib & kite trim), Andrew Hegarty (jib & kite trim), George Tottenham (pit & crew comforts officer), Anna McWilliam (mast & mid bow) and James Ryan (bow).
