Two final race wins in round the cans racing on the final day of the O'Leary Insurances Sovereign's Cup has given Royal Cork's Olson 30 Coracle VI (Kieran Collins) the overall title in IRC Two.

Just a single point separated overnight leader David Kelly's Half Tonner King One of Howth Yacht Club from the Crossahven crew going into the final day of racing but the two race wins tipped the balance in favour of the south coast crew.

The final races of the series were round the cans races in 13-20 knots of offshore breeze off Kinsale Harbour today.

George Radley's Cork Harbour Half Tonner Cortegada took third place.

Results here are provisional and subject to protest.
