Fireball Fleet Face Challenging Winds at Wexford Harbour Boat Club

20th July 2014
Fireball Fleet Face Challenging Winds at Wexford Harbour Boat Club

#fireball – The 16-boat Fireball fleet for the Munsters have had a very challenging 4 race programme today with light variable winds and lots of snakes and ladders racing writes Cormac Bradley. Very few boats don't have one big number on their scorecard and Noel Butler & Stephen Oram (15061) are the only boat in the top five who don't. A 3, 3, 2, 2 score line leaves them in 2nd place behind Barry McCartin & Conor Kinsella (15114) who have scored 1, 6, 1, 4. In third place we find Kenneth Rumball & David Moran (15058) with a 8, 4, 4, 3 record for the day.
Ben Scallan & Ronan Wallace of the home club, sailing 14820 are fourth with a 4, 1, 7, 8 return and fifth overall is Andrew Boyle & Alexander Rumball who won the last race of the day to add to their 5, 9, 13 tally.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
