Howth J109 'Outrajeous' Wins Sovereign's Cup Class One at Kinsale

Despite a disqualification (DSQ) in the penultimate race of the five-race series last night, Richard Colwell and John Murphy's new J109 campaign from Howth Yacht Club held the lead in Class One of the O'Leary Life Sovereign's Cup to take overall victory this afternoon.

'Outrajeous' discarded the DSQ result after a protest room decision last night and counted two wins and two seconds to be three points clear of Paul and Deirdre Tingle's X-34 Alpaca from Royal Cork who broke the stranglehold of the J109s in Class one, to finish as runner-up.

Brian Jones's sistership Jelly Baby from Royal Cork was third.

Outrajeous has been showing good speed and with Olympian Mark Mansfield aboard, was the one to watch in this class, even though John Maybury's Joker II pushed her hard in Wednesday's opening races.

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.
