Well done the Boys from Baltimore!

RTE have indicated that the two southern S61s were scrambled too,
"while the naval vessel, the LE Ciadhra, has left Cork Harbour and is on its way to the search area.."

I haven't heard of her - do you know what she is?

Never heard of her either and the Defense Forces website do not cite it at all.

LOL, so either:

1. RTE are maintaining their usual accurate standards of reporting

or

2. RTE have just blown the lid of our new Stealth Patrol Vessel

Neither of those old Heels of Oppression is called "LE Ciadhra"

Statement by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, issued 2053 BST Monday, 15th August 2011

The yacht Rambler 100 has capsized between the Fastnet Rock and the Pantaenius Buoy. The Irish Coastguard services are coordinating the rescue. The Baltimore RNLI lifeboat is on the scene. Two Sikorsky helicopters have been scrambled and an Irish Naval vessel is en route to the scene of the accident

All 21 crew have been rescued.

A further statement will be released when more information becomes known.

AND THE RACE NEWS-
Maxi Banque Populaire, the French 140 foot trimaran skippered by Loick Peyron, set a new outright multihull race record for the Rolex Fastnet Race when she reached Plymouth this evening at 19:48:46, for an elapsed time of 1 day, 8 hours, 48 minutes (32 hrs, 48 mins), and an average speed around the course of 18.5 knots.

In the process, skipper Loick Peyron broke the race record of 1 day, 16 hours, 27 minutes he previously set in 1999 aboard his 60 foot trimaran Fujcolor in 1999.

Banque Populaire holds the world record for the most number of miles covered by a sailing boat in one day - 908.2 miles, roughly one and a half times the length of the Rolex Fastnet Race.

RTE as usual losing the grip of itself. This morning's Irish Time has the real infor;

"The yacht capsized some time after 8pm last night in foggy but not very rough conditions.

The Baltimore RNLI lifeboat was called first to the scene with the successful rescue operation being co-ordinated by the Irish Coast Guard services. Coast Guard Sikorsky helicopters from Shannon and Waterford were also called in to help with the rescue effort, as was the LE Ciara naval vessel while the Army had transport on standby in Cork.

The LE Ciara remained standing off the capsized yacht last night, as it had been deemed a navigational hazard.

The Baltimore sailing club along with members of the local community provided food, clothes and showers for the people rescued."

Now it makes sense.
