Leading the Irish charge are Max Treacy and Anthony Shanks, back after some time off from the circuit and straight into the fray. They sit in 15th place overall in the 88-boat fleet, the biggest fleet the class has seen so far this year. The other Irish pairing, Peter O'Leary and Tim Goodbody, are four places and 5.5 points behind in 19th. O'Leary/Goodbody narrowed the gap considerably yesterday, having been 13 places adrift in 26th after three races.
The fleet has a lay day today, followed by two races on Friday and the final race on Saturday.
