After four races sailed at the Scottish Series in Tarbert, Dublin Bay boats continue to lead two of the four IRC classes on Loch Fyne yesterday.

In the RC35 class, Irish J109s are in total control. Royal Irish's Andrew Craig on the J109 Chimaera leads a 14-boat class by six points with Dublin boats in second and third place too. Howth Yacht Club's defending Scottish Series champions Storm, Pat Kelly is on 16 points in second. Something Else (Brian and John Hall of the National Yacht Club) are third on 17 points. 

In class three, Howth Half Tonner Harmony, (Jonny Swan) continues to lead and has extended her lead to three points from Scotland's Satisfaction, Nicholas Marshall.

As Afloat previously reported, the 2019 Scottish Series has attracted a significant Irish entry. It maintains the positive upswing which the regatta has been experiencing over recent years with overall entries up on target for Scotland's biggest sailing event.
