The answer was written in the weekend’s weather forecast: whoever could master the vagaries of Dublin Bay‘s light winds could count on victory at this year’s Irish Sailing Youth National Championships at Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

After three days of racing, only one of the early leaders from Thursday’s races in a near gale had held on to their overall lead by Sunday’s windless conclusion.
As Afloat.ie reported earlier, 213 competitors from 26 clubs around Ireland competed in a series that, although it had breeze throughout the wind range, will be remembered as a light air test, and a severe one at that, with some serious wind shifts in the tentative south–easterlies.
