The blistering upwind pace of Rush Sailing Club entry Storm has given Pat Kelly a two point overnight lead of the J109 National Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht Club. Kelly was fourth in race one but followed this with two well earned race wins in blustery north-westerly winds on the Dublin Bay race track.

Second in the 11–boat fleet is the host club's White Mischief skippered by Tim Goodbody on eight points. 2016 Scottish Series winner, John Hall's Something Else, from the National Yacht Club is lying third.  

Defending champion Joker II skippered by John Maybury of the host club is not competing.

Full results to date are below. The championships will be decided tomorrow.

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.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
