Topper Northern Championship 16-17th June 2018 Update

Last weekend saw 4 of our National Topper Sailors competing at the Northern Championship in Cushendall Sailing Club Natasha Hemeryck, Hugh O’Connor, Eoghan Turner and Caoimhe Seymour. The club gave us a warm welcome and a superb two day event. Conditions were tricky with shifting winds, rain and strong tides. Our sailors did us proud with Natasha Hemeryck leading the pack, coming 5th after the first days sailing and moving up to Second place to take the Under 17’s Trophy on day two. Hugh O’Connor had a steady race coming 8th overall as did Eoghan Turner who finished 10th overall. Caoimhe Seymour was placed 3rd after day one in the 4.2 Rig and maintained this position to win the 3rd place trophy in the 4.2rig. 

A huge congratulations to all our sailors and to Natasha and Caoimhe our trophy winners.
