#flyingfifteen – The National Yacht Club's Ian Mathews and Keith Poole overcame strong challenges for the Irish Flying Fifteen title in Waterford Harbour today when consistent sailing paid off for the Dun Laoghaire duo who overtook clubhouse leaders Strangford's Roger Chamberlain and Charlie Horder to lift the keelboat trophy by a single point.
Mathews and Poole did not win any single race of the series but finished each round of the seven race fixture in the top five. On the crucial final day they counted to second places to oust Chamberlain from the top spot in the 30–boat fleet.
Third overall was visiting UK pairing Andy and Anthony Osman from Poole Harbour in Dorset.
