After six races sailed at the Optimist European Championships in Tavira, Portugal, Royal Cork's Peter McCann leads the fleet after posting three top six finishes and discarding a 44th yesterday. The great effort by the Crosshaven youth sailor may yet put Ireland on the podium, a place Irish Oppy helms have not been since 1981. 130 are competing.

Royal Cork Optimist ace Peter McCann completed a clean sweep of the National Championships at Waterford Harbour SC yesterday counting nine of 11 results in the top three of the combined fleet of 249 boats. McCann's consistent performance put him 11 points clear of his second placed Partrick Crosbie alos of the Royal Cork.
