Former taoiseach Enda Kenny and TV star survival specialist Bear Grylls formed a winning partnership at a charity sailing event.

The race was organised by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge off the Isle of Wight on Thursday.

The inaugural regatta of The King’s Cup was established to raise awareness and funds for eight charities supported by William and Kate.

The competition saw celebrity skippers captain boats of professional sailors, in a two-race event.
