NYC Laser Sailors Finn Lynch & Conor Kneafsey Excel at Ulsters

NYC had only 2 representatives at the Laser Ulster Championships held at East Antrim Boat Club in Larne last weekend, May 17-18  (probably due to proximity of the Junior & Leaving Cert exams for many NYC Laser sailors), but they kept the NYC flag flying high as both sailors were on the podium with Finn winning the Standard Fleet and Conor finishing 2nd in the 4.7 Fleet.
