Xtravagance is Bloomsday Winner
Colin Byrne's Xtravagance was the winner of IRC one, one of six classes racing, in Saturday's Royal Alfred Bloomsday regatta on Dublin Bay.

The open event was hosted at the Royal St George Yacht Club and ran across four courses Course options. Results have been published for IRC Zero, one, two and three but record a poor turnout in the bay's typically strong cruiser class fleets.

Byrne's X-34 counted two second places to win from the Royal St. George's Erislannan (P. Kirwan) who won the first race but dropped to third in the second of the day.

The full results are HERE.
