Limerick Late entry Ger O'Rourke has passed Galway's Green Dragon overnight and moved in to fourth place. Is it bleary eyes on a Friday morning or could it be true? Early this morning the race tracker shows O'Rourke, who averaged the highest boat speed of 22 knots of the fleet yesterday, has an eight mile lead over Walker's Green Dragon and is 57 miles off third place. This morning's VOR race bulletin published at 10am will reveal all.
