In the penultimate day of racing of the CH Marine Chandlery Autumn League, Conor Phelan's  Ker 37 Jump Juice holds a commanding lead of six points writes Bob Bateman.

Phelan's class one lead is over Royal Cork club–mates Paul & Deirdre Tingle in the X34 Alpaca on 12 points overall with K Dorgan/J Losty in the Beneteau 36.7 Altair third on 15 points.

Winds for today's two races were westerly starting at 14–knots but falling all the time. The second race started in eight–knots.

A strong ebb tide of about two to three knots made it a hard beat for competitors (a Spring tide coupled with a lot of freshwater in the harbour after the last few days of rain). 

There were many groundings as competitors looked for slacker tide by sailing on the edge of Spit Bank where some of the groundings occurred. 

The first to ground was Jump Juice in the first race, hence their poor score (nine points) and one they are able to discard.
