The traditional opening laser event of the season at Easter in Baltimore was held in glorious weather and over 100 sailors in 3 fleets.  The 4.7 fleet was dominated by National YC sailors with 4 of the top 5 from NYC.  Hugh Perette was the overall winner with 3 race wins out of 6 races. Loghlan Rickard was also on the podium in 3rd place with Evie Byrne finishing 4th and Rory Fekkes in 5th.  Heather Spain, Jenny Fekkes and Robert Riordan also sailed well over the two days with Heather and Jenny just out of the top 10.  There were 4 NYC sailors (Daniel Raymond, Conor Kneafsey, Iseult Kneafsey and Conor Byrne) in the highly competitive Radial fleet with Daniel Raymond finishing in the Top 10 (9th) overall with 1 race win.  In the Full rig, Olympic hopeful Finn Lynch had a mixed event. He seemed to dominate on the water with apparent 6 race wins but he lost a protest and was DSQ from the 2nd race and was also OCS on the final race, finishing 6th overall despite 4 race wins. Local Baltimore sailor and fellow ISA Development Squad Fionn Lyden was the overall winner.
