Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailThe Crosbie Cup Eight NYC juniors took part in the 2017 Crosbie Cup which was hosted by Sutton Dinghy Club over the weekend. Over 50 sailors took part in the annual event where there were six races in Main fleet and eight races in Regatta fleet, the wind conditions were idyllic on both days although breezier at the start of the second day. The sailors representing the NYC were Lauren O’Callaghan who sailed in the Senior Main Fleet, Billy McCarthy, Conor Staunton, Edward Dempsey and Rachel Flood who sailed in the Junior Main Fleet and James Hall, Kate Flood and Lizzie Hall who sailed in the Regatta Fleet. The Crosbie Cup is for Silver Fleet Sailors only and the friendly atmosphere and great welcome from Sutton Dinghy Club set the tone for a fun weekend. The proximity of the race course area allowed a great opportunity to watch the sailors in action in beautiful sunshine in the distance the Spinnakers of the Dun Laoghaire yachts sailing in the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta were a colourful backdrop and where these young sailors will hopefully compete in years to come. Well done to our sailors who sailed very well over the 2 day event. Rebecca Hall
