National Yacht Club’s Mark Lyttle Crowned Laser Grand Master World Champion on Home Waters

In a tense climax to the Laser Master World Championships in Dun Laoghaire, Mark Lyttle won his first World Laser Title when he clinched the 66-boat Grand Master division on Dublin Bay, some 22 years after representing Ireland in the Laser class at the Atlanta Olympic Games.

Mark, a long standing Overseas Member of the National Yacht Club and who was a race winner at the Atlanta Games, hit this Worlds event in an age sweet–spot (he’s just turned 55) and qualified for the GrandMaster division (the biggest fleet in the event) to win it on the first occasion.
The Multi Irish champion won the UK Laser Masters Championships in June in some style, with six firsts in eight races but today’s World title will easily eclipse that and its made all the sweeter by winning on home waters too!
