Scottish visitor Leaky Roof II skippered by Alan Harper of Cove Sailing Club leads the Sigma 33 Class and Irish Championship 2018 after eight races sailed at the Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.

Visiting boats continue to dominate the overall placings but there was a race win in race five for Royal St. George's Gwilli Two skippered by Paddy Maguire.

It's a result that puts the former Irish Sailing President as top host boat in tenth place in the 22-boat fleet. Racing continues tomorrow.
