Another three race wins at the Monkstown Bay Sailing Club Laser League in Cork Harbour on Saturday means Kinsale Yacht Club's Darragh O'Sullivan has it all sewn up before the final race and he'll claim the traditional 'Yard of Ale' first prize next weekend writes Bob Bateman.

A bitingly cold, and gusty north-west wind and a strong ebb tide greeted a somewhat depleted fleet that saw local Chris Bateman maintained second place. Third overall is Ronan Kenneally.

Results below after 15 races.
