It is with huge pride that we would like to congratulate the whole crew of Black Dog for coming first in The Royal Ocean Racing Club’s 2019 IRC National Championships.  Flying their PNYC burgee, this was the first time this amateur Cornish team entered these Championships, taking on mostly professional or semi-professional crews.

“We haven’t sailed that much this year, so when we came up we said we’d be aiming for the top five and we’d be delighted by top three in our class. To win overall is incredible!” said Stuart Sawyer, his Black Dog also securing the Performance 40 prize.  “After we won Dartmouth Royal Regatta last year we thought we had to come here to see how we’d do…”
Well, first overall did very nicely!  Well done Black Dog.
