An OCS in race four proved costly for overnight leaders Ian Travers and Keith O'Riordan at Sunday's Squib South Coast Championship at Kinsale Yacht Club

The national champions were beaten overall by clubmates James and Harvey Matthews, whose consistent scoreline in the five-race series of 2, (3), 1, 2, 2  produced a two-point winning margin.

Three further strong wind races were held on Sunday for the 21-boat fleet at the Frank Clark Ltd Sponsored event.
