Toppers Irish National Championships Wexford – 6th – 8th July 2018


Wright Insurance Brokers Topper Irish National Championship Wexford 2018


Last weekend in glorious sunshine the Irish Topper National Championship took place in Wexford Harbour  Boat and Tennis Club. The National Yacht club was represented by Hugh O’Connor, Natasha Hemeryck, Eoghan Turner, Deirdre Turner and Caoimhe Byrne in the full 5.3 Rig and Caoimhe Seymour in the 4.2 Rig.


Over the three days the wind varied from north westerly’s to south westerly’s frequently changing upon the hour. However this did not deter our sailors from a wonderful event. Each sailor demonstrated tenacity and resilience on the water and steely determination which paid off. Nine races were sailed in total over the three days


In the 4.2 Rig:

Caoimhe Seymour came in 3rd Overall with impressive steady sailing over the three days.


In the 5.3 Rig:

Caoimhe Byrne came in 33rd overall (11th Irish Girl)

Deirdre Turner came in 27th overall (8th Irish Girl)

Eoghan Turner came in 11th overall (3rd Irish Boy)

Natasha Hemeryck came in 10th overall (3rd Irish Girl)


Hugh O’Connor came in 5th Overall (1st Irish Boy) and 1st U17


Many thanks to Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club for their hospitality, organisation, warm welcome and a great event.
