Defending champion Des FAHERTY, also from Howth managed to pull into the top three overall in the 50-boat fleet. Skiff sailor Mel Collins from Cork was at the helm in an all-amateur crew.
Match Racing supremo Chris LAW placed a disappointing fifth overall having held second overall at the outset of the 11-race series.
The four-day event was sailed in a mix of weather from light to fresh winds and the Howth YC received widespread acclaim from crews for the high standard of event management afloat and ashore.
