Day 2 

Visiting Flying Fifteen World Champion Steve Goacher made short work of the Irish Championships that is otherwise dominated by Northern Ireland crews at Whitehead in County Antrim. 

Goacher, from Lake Windermere, counted four wins from five races after a breezy day with gusts to 25–knots. The 24–boat fleet sailed windward/leeward followed by triangle courses.
Lying second on day 2 was Andrew McCleary and Colin Dougan from Killyleagh. Third was Strangford's Andy and Rory Martin.

Day 3

Steve Goacher from Lake Windermere sailed to victory in a single race on the final day of the Flying Fifteen Irish Championships at County Antrim Yacht Club. 

The multiple World and British Champion, sailing with Dun Laoghaire's Alan Green, counted five race wins in the six race series.
Today's single windward leeward race was raced on an inshore course given the gusty conditions at Whitehead.
Strangford Lough boats took second and third places. Andrew McCleary and Colin Dougan from Killyleagh finished second Andy and Rory Martin in third.
Waterford Harbour's Lee Statham and Andrew Paul took fifth and were the first boat from the Republic.
There will be some disappointment that the first Flying fifteen from the fleet stronghold at Dun Laoghaire was as far back as tenth in the 24–boat national championship fleet.
