Conor Phelan's Jump Juice from Royal Cork Yacht Club continues to lead the largest division of the O'Leary Insurances Sovereign's Cup at Kinsale after scoring a third in the third race of the coastal series to be one point ahead overall. 

A race win today for Phelan's clubmates Nieulargo (Denis & Annamarie Murphy) moves the Grand Soleil 40 up to third overall, to be three points behind Bob Rendell's Grand Soleil 44 from Howth Yacht Club in second overall on seven points.

The third coastal race was sailed in 15 to 20-knot northerly winds.

The 17-strong coastal fleet features some of the biggest yachts in the event. As regular Afloat readers will know, first, second (joint) and third from this month's Dun Laoghaire Dingle Race are sailing in the Sovereign's coastal fleet.
