The event saw the Club buzzing with sailors, supporters, local business dignatories, the Cathaoirleach, Councilors and officials from the Council, the Chairman and CEO of the Harbour Company, and many more. Meanwhile the spectacle of the 46 Figaro single handed yachts, and the support boats, with sponsors battle flags flapping in the breeze lit by the fireworks made the Harbour and the Club look spectacular and provided a unique backdrop for the festivities ashore. The Figaro sets off for Les Sables d’Olonne on the three day third leg, of what is the third most publicised event in the French sporting calender, on Sunday morninmg at 11.00 Irish time.
