Open Cycle Map (and transport map) shows the sea in the wrong place, see for example https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/57.4991/-6.7390&layers=C

It is drawn more correctly on the standard map. It seems that Open Cycle Map is using the wrong data source to define the sea. Can anybody tell me exactly how this works, and if a user can edit it?

Someone has broken the coastline polygon and the renderer has let the sea in. This has now been fixed in the OpenStreetMap database that all these maps use.
The standard and humanitarian maps now show the data correctly and are rendered more often that the cycle and transport maps.
There is nothing you can do to render the cycle and transport maps ahead of the schedule that the map providers use to update their maps.
The OpenCycleMap is updated every few days with the latest data from OpenStreetMap
