After a day and a half of sailing in the Volvo Round Ireland Race, it came down to the last 10 minutes to decide who were the winners as the multihulls neared the finish line off Wicklow harbour at dawn. The 3 seventy foot trimarans played cat and mouse all the way down the east coast in varying breeze from the south southwest. For those following this nail biting finish on the yellow brick tracker, they saw the crown swapping between each boat to within a few miles of the finish. Phaedo³ crossed the line second and provisionally won the class but there are still other multihulls to finish.
