‘Finding Saoirse’ – ladies 1720 report

An NYC ladies team recently entered for the 1720 Europeans held in Dun Laoghaire from 16-18 June.
The team are a group of NYC sailing mums who are more normally to be found shoreside, organising junior coaching and racing. They are part of a larger group of mums who regularly sail on the team club boats.

The skipper and team organiser was Fiona Staunton. Fiona is an experienced sailor but the crew were of varying levels of experience and none had prior experience of sailing 1720s. In March, the goal was set for the Europeans Championships, we chartered NYC1, which we have since re-baptised ‘Finding Saoirse’ as it initially proved to be an impossible task, and began to train.

Something Else wins prestigious Silver Marine Scottish Series – IRC Class 2

John & Brian Hall’s J109 ‘Something Else’ won the IRC Class 2 in the prestigious Scottish Series in a highly competitive fleet featuring boats from northwest Europe.

This was an incredibly tight class across the whole weekend and it couldn’t have ended any closer with just one point separating the top three boats. John and Brian Hall pulled out all the stops on Something Else to net a second and third which was enough to top of the table and also bring home the Causeway Cup awarded to the entry which in the opinion of the Race Committee gave the best performance of the IRC classes in the Series. Full results here
