There was no change at the top of the leaderboard at Royal Cork Yacht Club's Laser National Championships after two more races were sailed in Cork Harbour today, bringing the total to five races of the Championships sailed so far.

Olympian Finn Lynch maintains a perfect scoreline of five wins in the standard rig. See the standard rig results here

The host club's Luke McGrath stays top in the Radial rig. Read the Radial results here.

In the biggest fleet of the Championships, Jack Fahy of the Royal St.George YC also stays in front of his 42–boat 4.7 fleet. 4.7 results are here.

By the end of the second race today, winds hit 28–knots on the race course, bringing to an end a hectic second day of the championships for Race Officer Peter Crowley.

Racing continues tomorrow. Scroll down for photo gallery by Bob Bateman.

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.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
