Just a single point separates leader David Kelly's Half Tonner King One from Royal Cork Olson 30 Coracle VI (Kieran Collins) in IRC Division Two going into the final day of racing at the O'Leary Insurances Sovereign's Cup Regatta on Saturday.

Races five and six were sailed in northerly 15 to 20-knot winds off Kinsale Harbour today.

George Radley's Cork Harbour Half Tonner Cortegada is eight points adrift of his Cork clubmate on 15 points overall in third place.

The Cup series concludes tomorrow (Saturday).
