O'Leary Exits All Ireland Sailing Regatta

Pre-Regatta favoutite Anthony O'Leary has exited the All Ireland Sailing Championships in the qualfiying rounds. A start line penalty suffered in today's second race of flight two forced him out of the running.

The victorious Commodore's Cup captain, the current Irish Sailor of the Year, who has sailed in the event previously a dozen times and finished as runner-up on three occassions is the shock elimination as the fleet is halved from 16 to eight for tomorrow's final.

The flight two winners, who appear more evenly matched than flight one, were Flor O'Driscoll, Ryan Seaton, Noel Butler and Gordon Patterson.

The eight finalists are here.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
