Algeo's Royal Irish Yacht Club campaign, that had already earned east coast championship honours back in May, emerged two points clear on 11–points after a keenly fought six race series with one discard. Algeo, a former dinghy and J24 sailor, counted two race wins in his five-race tally.
Medium to heavy conditions over two days ideally suited Juggerknot's crew who made the best of the northerly breezes off Lambay with some fine boat handling on display both upwind and downwind.
Overnight leader Tim Goodbody in White Mischief finished second with a strong one-two result for the Royal Irish Yacht Club.
The defending champions, Storm, of Howth Yacht Club, finished third overall on home waters on 15-points in the 11-boat fleet.
