Wicklow Sailing Club says a 'clerical error' on the tracker site for its Volvo Round Ireland Race that provisionally showed the Dublin J122 Aurelia in second place overall on IRC Handicap has now been 'rectified'. 

The recalculation puts the Defence Forces team on the J109 Joker II into second place and drops Chris Power Smith's team from the Royal St. George from second to third overall.

It is understood no other finishing positions are affected.

Wicklow Sailing Club's David McHugh told Afloat.ie: 'A clerical error on the tracker site led to an incorrect rating for Joker II. This has been rectified in the overall results".

A disclaimer on the tracker site says "These results are provisional - refer to the race website for official results".

Official results from the race have been published on the RORC site here.
