Update on theTopper Southern Championship RCYC 12-13th May

This weekend saw superb racing in Cork with the National Yacht Club well represented by Hugh O’Connor, Natasha Hemeryck, Caoimhe Byrne and Caoimhe Seymour. Conditions were tough with strong tides and shifty winds. Hugh O’Connor finished the first day in the lead and managed to stave off stiff competition on day two winning the overall championship outright.

Caoimhe Seymour battled it out for 4th Place in the 4.2 Rig and Natasha Hemeryck and Caoimhe Byrne gained respectable places in the top half of the fleet. Congratulations to all our sailors.

Update on Optimist Trials 2018

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.
