Anthony O’Leary’s Corby 35 ‘Antix’ won sailing's Sovereign’s Cup at Kinsale Yacht Club, and Paddy Gregory’s Elan 31 ‘Benola’ the Portcullis Trophy. Eamon Conneely’s Transpac 52 ‘Patches’ was the winner in Division 0 IRC, gaining National Champion title for that Division and the Saab Trophy for IRC.
‘Antix’ was the yacht deemed by the organising committee to have put in the best overall performance under IRC across the four fleets. She and Eamon Crosbie’s ‘Voodoo Chile’ had quite a duelling match in Division 1, with ‘Antix’ emerging as National Champion. ‘Benola’ finished first overall in both IRC and Echo in Division 2, winning double National Championship titles. Neil White’s Sigma 400 ‘Barafundle of Mumbles’ was the Division 1 winner and Champion.
