Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailruth_D2D2015¬†Congratulations to all on-board NYC J109 ‘Ruth’ for their overall win in the 2015 Skellig Hotel Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race. ‘Ruth’ narrowly missed the overall win of the 2014 Round Ireland Race by just over 6mns but, victory was not let go off their hands this time around! Skipper Liam Shanahan Jnr led his crew (Ben Shanahan, William Shanahan, Fiochra Etchingham, Simon Digby, Vinny Varley, Connal O’Halloran and Kevin Daly) throughout a nail biting race which saw them virtually match racing fellow J109 competitor ‘Mojito’ (Peter Dunlop / Vicky Coxx) up to the last few miles where they finally managed to open a gap of around 2 miles…. Ruth finished with a narrow but slightly more comfortable margin (compared to their Round Ireland second place) of 21mns ahead of Mojito, albeit only registering an average speed 0.048 knts (or just 0.83%!!)¬†faster than Mojito over the length of the race.
