David O’Connell, Laser, has increased his lead at Monkstown Bay Sailing Club’s July Dinghy League in Class 1, winning Race 7 to have just 5 points overall.

Double-handed Laser sailors Judy Moynihan and Therese Loesberg, continue second on 18 points, the gap between first and second having increased to 13. In third place the 505 (Charles McCarthy and Barry O’Connor) on 25 are now seven points behind.

With the last race of the league this week, O’Connell’s overall win seems certain and second and third look like remaining the same.

It is tighter in Class 2, where Isobel and Tim O’Connor, first in their Mirror, are two points clear of second, on a total of 7, Isabelle Clarke Waterman’s RS Feva XL on 9 with Tony Geraghty and Daragh Killeen in another Feva in third on 11.
