Laser sailor Brendan Dwyer leads the Monkstown Bay Sailing Club October League after two races sailed in the Cork Harbour club's first races of its October League on Saturday.

Medium westerlies gave some exciting racing to the combined fleet of 12 mixed dinghies comprising National 18s, five 505s, RS Aero and five Laser dinghies.

Race officers were John and Judy Moynihan.

Lasers filled the podium in Class One, with Daniel Mallon second and Cove Sailing Club's Kieran Dorgan in third.
