Fairy Tale Ending

27 October 2012

There were emotional scenes dockside in Malta this morning as Irish sailors Barry Hurley and Andrew Boyle sailed home in their 35FT yacht Dinah to win the double handed class, they finished just 25 minutes inside the time limit after seven days of tense racing in the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
 
Hurley has described the race as the 'most intense' race he has ever sailed. The overall achievement has yet to sink in for the Irish pairing but it has not stopped early celebrations this morning followed by the Rolex Middle Sea Race Prize Giving at the Mediterranean Conference Centre.
 
Full results are now available and pictures from the Prize Giving will be available in the Media Gallery.
