Flying Fifteens Fight it out in Carlingford

#flyingfifteen – Four points separates the top four boats at the Flying Fifteen Southern Championship after day one  on Carlingford Lough yesterday.

 

Killyleagh's Andy McClery took two bullets to lead after three races in 14 knots. Race three saw Gerry Reilly take a tidal advantage on the right side of the Lough to take the winning gun.

The scoreboard sees Northern Ireland boats on top in the fifteen boat fleet - 1) McClery 2) Chamberlin 3) Reilly 4) McKee.

David Mulvin in sixth keeps the flag flying for the Dun Laoghaire fleet.
