Friday's Royal Cork Yacht Club May IHS cruiser-racer league in Cork Harbour was won by Louise O'Keeffe's Dufour 30, Labous Gwen in a corrected time of 1 hour 16 minutes and 16 seconds.

Fiona Young's Albin Express, North Star was second in the light air race in a time of 1:16:45 corr. The McJenkins family were third in the S&S 34, Morning After (1:18:47 corr).

A dull Friday turned sunny by mid-afternoon but the wind went light for the start of the race and was no match for the harbour's foul tide.

Overall, after three races sailed in the May league, Labous Gwen leads by five points from Clodagh O'Donovan's First 35s5, Roaring Forties on 15 points. Danny Rock's RCYC 1720 is lying third.

Results are provisional (below) for the 11-boat fleet, which produced further proof for the Royal Cork claim that momentum is growing in Summer keelboat racing with a combined harbour league resuming in June.
