Steve Goacher and Phil Evans lead after four races completed at the Flying 15 European Championships being held at the Kinsale YC, Ireland.

Current World Champion Mike Hart and Richard Rigg started the event in great form, winning the first two races. In both races they recovered from poor starts.

On the second day it was Gaocher and Evans who took control, winning both races and moving into the overall lead. But with the discard still to come the race for the title will be between the top four.

Alan Bax and Bill Masterman are second overall, sailing very consistantly and the new UK National Champions, Greg Wells and Mark Darling have slipped out of contention, they are sixth overall.
