John Lavery marked his return to the Flying Fifteen Class after a five-year hiatus by clinching the Irish title at Waterford Harbour Sailing Club today. 

Sailing with Alan Green, the National Yacht Club duo took two wins from four races sailed today after the first two days of the championships were blown out.

Second overall in the 15-boat fleet was Dunmore East's own Lee Statham and Andrew Paul, two points behind Lavery. 

Third place was taken by Strangford Lough brothers Andy and Rory Martin. Peter Kennedy and Stephen Kane, also from Strangford Lough, were fourth.

We've got a favour to ask

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.
