On the fifth day of the Calves Week Sailing Regatta. the course was from Schull Harbour via the Middle Calf, Fastnet Rock, Aldermann Rock and finishing in Crookhaven. Despite an excellent start from Schull Harbour at 12.10 pm we were temporarily becalmed between the Middle Calf and the Fastnet Rock. Although our rounding of the Fastnet Rock
at 16.30 pm did not leave sufficient time to reach Crookhaven within the 5 hour time limit, the day's
sailing was enjoyed by all and we returned to Schull in high spirits.
