Update on Optimist Trials 2018

The Optimist Dinghy Irish team trials took place in The RSGYC last weekend as part of the Volvo Irish Sailing Youth Pathway National Championships 2018 which were being hosted jointly by the National Yacht Club and the Royal St George Yacht Club Dun Laoghaire.

 

 

Update of the Volvo Youth Sailing National Championships 2018

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.
