Irish Flying Fifteen Nationals at National Yacht Club - Day 2

by Cormac Bradley 30 Sep 2018 06:27 BST 28-30 September 2018

Day two of the event saw Race Officer Jack Roy having to deal with westerly winds that were a lot stronger than the forecast for the day. With this being the last day of Dublin Bay Sailing Club racing for 2018, the race area was to the west of the harbour.

With a wind that fluctuated around West, the fleet enjoyed excellent racing conditions and three races were completed.

Race wins were shared between Charles Apthorp & Alan Green who took the first race comfortably, leading from start to finish, ahead of Dave Gorman & Chris Doorly and Bryan Willis & John McPeake. The latter combination who had struggled badly yesterday but made amends today with a 14, 6, 1 return for the day.

Gorman & Doorly were even better with a 2, 1, 3 return that sees them take the lead of the regatta by a margin of eight points. Overnight leaders Andy McCleery & Colin Dougan had a more difficult day as they scored a 7, 18, 6.

One of those to have a particularly good day were Alistair Court & Conor O'Leary who scored a 8, 3, 12 to secure a place in the top ten overnight.

Ben Mulligan & Cormac Bradley would have enjoyed three top ten finishes but their first race of the day was downgraded to an OCS. They weren't the only ones to embrace letters on their score cards!

Results after Day 2: (top five, 5 races)

1. Dave Gorman & Chris Doorly, 8pts
2. Roger Chamberlain & Charlie Horder, 16pts
3. Lee Statham & Andrew Paul, 18pts
4. Charles Apthorp & Alan Green, 20pts
5. Andy McCleery & Colin Dougan, 20pts

Racing recommended at 10:55 Sunday morning.
