Five Flying Fifteen couples danced the salsa, jive and cha cha cha for the Flying Fifteen Glitter Ball Trophy last night at the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.

Six weeks in training with a professional dance coach produced some expert displays for over 100 attending the special night.

Four judges voted Dun Laoghaire sailors Niall Meagher and Bernie Mulvin the winners but only after a dance– off.
