Moth Sailor Rory Fitzpatrick from Dun Laoghaire enjoyed a great end fo a great season in his foiling dinghy when he placed tenth overall at the MS Amlin International Moth Regatta in Bermuda last week. The National Yacht Club sailor chalked up the top score against some of the best of the international foiling fleet. The regatta attracted a field of 50 Mothists from 10 nations. Fitzpatrick adds the result to his fifth overall achieved at the Euro champs in France in July.

England's Rob Greenhalgh is a hard man to bet against when there's money on the line. Just ask Chris Rashley or Dylan Fletcher-Scott.

For the second consecutive year, Greenhalgh came through when it mattered most and successfully defended the MS Amlin International Moth Regatta hosted by the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.

Last year Greenhalgh entered the final day trailing Rashley by 1 point. He then went out and won four races to score an 8-point victory.
