Lorcan Tighe is Afloat.ie “Sailor of the Month” for September

We are delighted to congratulate Lorcan Tighe on winning Afloat.ie ‘Sailor of the Month’ for September. 

Lorcan Tighe of Dun Laoghaire makes such a broadly-based contribution to Irish sailing as a sailor, an instructor and a race officer, that you’d assume he was somebody with many years of experience under his belt. But he’s only 17 – a Sixth Form schoolboy, to be precise. Yet his sailing CV is already formidable.
