After six races in blustery conditions on the Broadmeadows, Malahide, Adam Hyland/Bill Staunton (RStGYC/SSC) took the Curradinghy-sponsored 420 Leinster title from Robert Dickson/Sean Waddilove (HYC/SSC) by virtue of two race wins.
Hyland & Staunton won the fourth and fifth races to edge out their northside rivals who were second in four races.
The Malahide cousins Lizzy and Cara McDowell also had a consistent series and also won the third race to finish third overall, a point ahead of the Royal St.George YC sisters Kate and Alanna Lyttle.
Best placed of the silver fleet was Philip McDowell & Cian Buckley of the host club in 7th overall.
Event organiser, Brian McDowell, thanked PRO Neil Murphy and the race management team that conducted racing in challenging conditions.

The Leinster Championship scheduled for this weekend have been postponed due to the atrocious weather forecast. A rescheduled date will be announced in due course.
ISA 420 coach Ross Killian will be holding an open training session focusing on regatta preparation for the ISA youth nationals in Lough Derg on Wednesday 3rd of April.
The aim of the session will be to get on the water the day before the regatta in order to familiarise the sailors with the venue and the racing areas. There will be a briefing at 1.00pm at the club. 1 session is planned on the water followed by a de brief. The session is open to all and will be no fee.
Well done to all who took part in the training in Malahide this week. The feedback from the coaches was that everybody had done really well. Looking forward to the Leinsters next weekend.
