Irish Fireballs slip further in Barbados

5th May 2010
Irish Fireballs slip further in Barbados

Chips Howarth and Viv Townend continue to build what looks like an insurmountable lead sailing at the Fireball World Championships, notching up two further wins in yesterday's light airs. Their scoreline now reads 1-3-3-1-1-1, putting them 11 points clear at the top as the fleet enjoys a lay day in the Caribbean. Irish interests took a knock with top-placed paddies Noel Butler and Seamus Moore dropping to 25th, with Neil Spain and Francis Rowan taking up the mantle of top Irish in 21st.
