Peter Beamish and his crew on Camira have beaten defending champion Jean Mitton's Levana to win the 2018 Beneteau 31.7 National Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht Club.

Beamish, of the host club, won three of four races on Saturday to lead overnight, as Afloat.ie reported here, but two wins from two races today by Royal St. George's Mitton closed Beamish's winning margin to just one point after discard but even though Beamish posted a 12 and a 4 in races five and six today, it was not enough to overhaul Camira overall.
