The overnight leader was ousted from the top spot in IRC Division Three today in the final race of the O'Leary Insurance Sovereign's Cup.

David Lane in the J/24 YaGottaWanna overtook rival and club mate Royal Cork Quarter Tonner Supernova (Dave O Regan & Denise Phelan & Tony Donworth) for the top prize.

Although both crews finished on the same 15 points, Lane won overall based on his first place in the last race of the series. 

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

A second Cork Harbour Quarter Tonner BonJourno! Part Deux (Rob O'Reilly) finished third overall. 

Results here are provisional and subject to protest.
