Royal Cork Yacht Club's Dave Kenefick lies an impressive third overall – and a single point off second place – at the 40–boat UK Moth National Championships. 

Counting a string of top ten results in a fleet packed with top British dinghy sailors, Kenefick scored two second places on Friday, which means the Cork Harbour sailor is eyeing a podium finish at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club. 

Conditions so far have been perfect for foiling Moth sailing, with 12 knots of breeze and flat water. 

Howth Yacht Club's Alistair Kissane is 19th and the National Yacht Club's Neil O'Toole is 25th.

More on this from Mark Jardine in Yachts and Yachting.
