NYC sailors have great performance at British Nationals

The British Optimist nationals were held in Pwllheli this year.  We had 43 Irish sailors at the event and overall the Irish performed very well.

The national Yacht club was represented by 10 sailors, 5 of which are on the Iodai u12 team.  Lucia Cullen (u12 team), Edward (u12 team), Ella and Jonathon Dempsey, Conor Staunton(u12team), Des, Hugh & Luke Turvey, Clementine Van Steenberg (u12 team) and Rocco Wright,(U12 team).

The weather was great but sailing conditions were light and shifty.

Topper World Championships China 2018

Winthrop Engineering Ltd wishes the Dublin Topper Team going to China for the World Topper Championship the Best of Luck.

This August the National Yacht Club will be represented by a strong team at the world Topper Championship in China. The Meisha Campus at Longcheer Yacht Club in Shenzhen will be hosting the championship. This year sees a record number over 250 entering the event which will be no bother for our sailors who have trained long and hard over the winter and competed over the summer at all the national events. Our team consists of Hugh O’Connor who ranks number one at the moment along with Natasha Hemeryck who ranks number 3, Eoghan Turner Deirdre Turner and Caoimhe Seymour. Caoimhe Seymour won the recent traveller in the 4.2 sail in Carrickfergus.  

 

2018 Optimist British National and Open Championship

We have 10 junior sailors from NYC competing in this event, see if you can spot them in these great short video updates.

Day 1 https://vrsport.tv/vr-media/2018-optimist-british-national-open-championship-day-one/
The start of the qualifiers for the huge international Optimist fleet in Pwllheli, Wales. It turned out to be a long day on the water, six hours, with just a start, beat and downwind leg before abandonment. Hardy sailors these Oppies!

Day 2 https://vrsport.tv/vr-media/2018-optimist-british-national-open-championship-day-two/
Day Two of the UK Optimist Nationals 2018 hosted by Plas Heli in North Wales. “Choppy and light winds” – classic for the region if it’s not blowing old boots! Three races completed and many smiles or frowns with plenty of stories to tell the coaches and support crews (parents).

Day 3 https://vrsport.tv/vr-media/2018-optimist-british-national-open-championship-day-three/

Meet the Regatta Fleet – the very young guns competing at the 2018 Optimist British Nationals. On water coaching, having fun with their friends makes for a great introduction to big fleet racing.
