#1720 – There was a clear cut victory in the 2015 1720 sportsboat National Championships for Tom Durcan's T–Bone steered by Alex Barry of Monkstown Bay SC yesterday. The 14-boat fleet sailed out in dense fog and had to wait for two hours for sufficient breeze to get the final two races of the event away.
In the end, T-Bone, with double Olympian Peter O'Leary on board, continued its overall lead and did not have to sail the last race of the day to secure the title. It is the second top performance by Alex Barry this season, the Cork dinghy helm took Bronze at the RS400 Eurocup in France this month too.
A tie on overall points was decided in Antix and Anthony O'Leary's favour for second with Ben Cooke's Smile and Wave third. Fourth was Dun Laoghaire's Team INSS sailed by Kenneth and Alex Rumball who were flying the flag for Leinster at what was a Munster dominated event.
