The Leinster Laser Championship took place in Rush from the 6-7th July..

On Saturday the conditions were light and shifty with a large tide which was challenging for all sailors, however, the Race Officer managed to squeeze 3 races in. 

Irish Ulster Laser Championships Larne

Irish Ulster Laser Championships Larne

NYC was represented by Hugh O’Connor (4.7 Rig) and James Delaney (Radial) at the Irish Ulster Championships in Larne over the weekend (29-30th June).  Hugh O’Connor did a great race and came in 3rd position overall in the 4.7 Rig. Light Winds meant there was no races on Saturday despite great attempts to get one going. However, Sunday made up for it with plenty of wind enabling 4 races to be held. The next Laser Event is the Irish Leinster Championship on Sat 6th and Sun 7th July in Rush.
