Barry Hurley, co-skipper of double-handed entry Dinah (along with Hannah White) has phoned in a quick podcast update describing conditions up the west coast of Ireland for the fleet in the Conway Media Round Ireland Yacht Race. Dinah's division is still being led by Psipsina, who also lead Class 2, with struggling to make speed off the coast of Galway, losing some ground to the boats that stayed closer to shore.

Tonnerre de Breskens is still in the lead on the water and on paper, ploughing a furrow towards Donegal and trailing Spirit of Rosslare Europort in her wake. Those two boats have maintained speed and looks like they should get the new breeze earlier than most, too, hurrying them around the top of Ireland.

Boats can now call in race reports from the water direct to our webmaster's voicemail for use as podcasts, just dial 08652570320 and leave your report after the beep, and we'll get it up online as soon as possible.

Results below are as at 12pm.

It was all change on the Conway Media Round Ireland Yacht Race leaderboard with on-the-water leader Tonnerre de Breskens taking pole, both elapsed and corrected, at the 9.30am check-in. Tonnerre led both Class Zero and the overall standings, and is at present holding off the Open 60 Spirit of Rosslare Europort as the breeze prepares to take a break, dying off before strengthening again later from a more westerly direction.

Inis Mor is in second, with IRC 1 leader Visit Malta Puma in third overall. have let their crown slip, with defending double-handed champion Paddy Cronin, sailing with John Loden, taking the lead in that class overall for the time being as the yachts chase up the west coast.

Cavatina still leads cruisers 4 and the classics, but her fate and those like her won't be known until the weather patters for the next three days play themselves out. There's still all to play for in an intriguing Round Ireland.
