Default Lovely Blue Sky in RGB.. not so in CMYK

This is something that has always bugged me but not until now has it really had a real effect on my particular job.

I am preparing some images for print that have a great looking sky in RGB but after conversion to CMYK really loses it's vibrance and quality.

Ive trawled all other posts.. even sough out Bruce Fraser's 'Real World Colour Management' at the library. But to no avail really.

If it isn't possible.. it would also be really helpful to get a good intelligent sounding reason why. So i don't get into any trouble.

These images have been scanned from transperancys if that is useful information. An example image is below. One show's the RGB version.. the other what happens after conversion to CMYK.

Thank you so much potential postees!
