Medium to strong westerly breezes greeted the 65 Lasers from over 30 clubs around the country across three fleets – 4.7’s, Radial and Standard Rigs for the Championships in Cork Harbour this weekend. Racing is taking place on the
Eastern Bank in Cork Harbour  between Aghada and Cuskinny.

In the Radial Division, Howth Yacht Club's Jamie McMahon leads the 23-boat fleet but only just. The Dublin youth, who so narrowly missed out on overall honours in the youth championships in March, is on the same eight points as RCYC's Chris Bateman. Third is Waterford Harbour's Geoff Power. Download provisional results below.

In the 4.7 fleet, the biggest fleet of the weekend is led by James Delaney of Lough Ree. Second is Cathal O'Regan of RCYC with Alanna Coakley of Royal St. George third. Download provisional results below.

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.
