John Twomey, Anthony Hegarty and Ian Costelloe have maintained tenth position in the three-person keelboat class at the Paralympics.

Today was a difficult day of racing for Ireland's Paralympic sailors in Weymouth.

The scheduled morning racing had to be postponed for several hours as Portland Harbour was flat calm without a wisp of breeze.

Racing finally began for the class at 2pm in 7 knots of breeze.

Twomey and his crew placed tenth in race 5 and tenth in race 6.

They finish day three maintaining their position of tenth overall with a further five races left to sail.
