Former World Champion Charles Apthorp of Hayling Island SC, with Alan Green of the National YC on board, eased to victory in the Flying Fifteen East Coast Championship held in Dun Laoghaire at the weekend (Oct 4,5), with four wins from five races.
There was thrilling sailing in brisk winds – Apthorp later said it was the best he has had this year – for the 29 teams taking part in the event, with close contests all through the fleet.
David Gorman and Chris Doorly on the National YC were the only team to trouble the winners on the results sheet, taking first in the final race. Current Irish Champions Andrew McCleery and Colin Dougan of Killyleagh YC placed third.
