#RS - Thirteen Fevas battled it out with Tim Norwood and Finn Cleary of the Royal Irish Yacht Club who took their class Southern title with five bullets to count as the RS Southern Championships concluded yesterday (Sunday 16 September) in Baltimore Harbour.

Frank O’Rourke and Emma Hynes of Greystones Sailing Club had an equally impressive series, never dropping out of the top three and winning the 21-strong RS 200 fleet.

In the RS400 class, the recent third-place finishers at the RS400 Europeans held their winning form securing the Southern title in a fleet of 18 boats.

Alex Barry and Richard Leonard (Monkstown Bay/Royal Cork) held off the home team of Johnny and Harry Durcan as well as Rush Sailing Club’s Alan Ruigrok and Max McNught with five bullets.

Baltimore Sailing Club thanked event organiser Jim Griffiths, helpers afloat and onshore, the race management team, results personnel and all competitors at the late season event and a fitting conclusion to the 2018 RS calendar.

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.
