Lavery Retains South Coast Flying Fifteen Title
15th August 2011
Big seas and big winds off Hook Head for the opening day of the Flying Fifteen South Coast Championships at Dunmore East, County Waterford produced some of the most exciting sailing of the season for a fleet of 16 of the two man keelboats at the weekend. John Lavery and David O'Brien called a halt to David Gorman and Chris Doorly's recent run of success with three wins win to retain the South Coast title that concluded yesterday. The top Irish performers at the recent world championships Brian McKee and Ian Smyth of Strangford Lough Yacht Club were third. Next up for the Fifteens is the class Northern Championships at Cushendall in County Antrim in two weeks time.
