Strangford Flying Fifteen Pair in Top Form at Dunmore East Nationals

#flyingfifteen – Roger Chamberlan and Charlie Horder from Strangford Lough have produced a consistent 5,2,2,1 in Dunmore East, County Waterford to be overnight leaders going into tomorrow's final two rounds of the Irish Flying Fifteen Championships off Hook Head. Full results are downloadable below as a jpeg file. 

Shifting light to medium winds resulted in all five races of the Waterford Harbour series sailed so far being shortened for the 30–boat fleet.

Lying second overall is Dublin Bay pairing Ian Mathews and Keith Poole from the National Yacht Club. Third are UK visitors, Poole Harbour pairing, Andy and Anthony Osman.

The final two races begin tomorrow at 12 noon, light north westerlies are forecast.
