The August Boat of The Month award goes to Carrageen.

Congratulations to Trevor Kirkpatrick and his crew of Steve & Fiona Atkinson, Ricky McCaig and Mandy Rodgers who won the Irish Ruffian Championships at the Royal St George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire in a fleet of 19 boats.

This is the third time that Trevor has won the event and it didn't come any easier, with Carrageen coming from one point behind after days one and two going into the final days three races.

A third and two firsts in the last races snatched the victory with a tie on points and a count back of three wins to two for the second place Dublin boat.
