Kenny Rumball and David Moran made the most of strong winds and big seas sailing to win the Fireball Munster Championships in a last race decider at Dunmore East this afternoon. In a series that was cut to just four races because of strong winds the Royal St. George pair scored an 8,1,3,1 from locals Michael Murphy and Andrew Voye counting 2,2,2,4 after a single discard. Third was national champions Noel Butler and Shane McCarthy. Today's tow races were sailed as two short windward-leeward courses. 31 competed.
