D2D Sat 1pm – Big Boat Benefit Along South Coast

#D2DRace – It is the two highest rated boats that lead the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle fleet along the south coas this afternoont, Lee Overlay Partners (Adrian Lee) on the water and Antix (Anthony O'Leary) as IRC overall leader.

The leaders lie due south of Cork harbour, while the peloton is spread out over the Wexford and Waterford coasts, with every boat clear of the Tuskar and broad reaching westwards.

In the two handed division, HYC's Blue Eyes (Colm Buckley & Simon Knowles, Howth YC) are current leaders while Lady Rowena (David Bolger) of the Royal St George is first in the Cruiser division.

Current forecast suggests a dying breeze will be followed by a southwesterly veering as the fleet rounds the Fastnet meaning the probable end of spinnakers for a while.
