Report from Opi Munsters

Great performance from the National Yacht Club optimist sailors last weekend with 2 fleet winners (senior main fleet and regatta fleet) for the Munster Championships in Cork Harbour!

9 National Yacht Club sailors took part in the last optimist regional event of the season, was hosted by Monkstown Bay Sailing Club and launched from Paddy’s Point slipway in Ringaskiddy. 
The 126 sailors had great conditions with 15kts on Saturday and 16-22kts on Sunday and blue sky!

In the main fleet senior (35 boats), William Walsh NYC came 1st overall with a 9 point lead. Hannah Walsh, 3rd in silver fleet and 17th overall. 

In the main fleet junior (50 boats), Louise Hanley came 3rd in silver fleet, Félix Dion, 9th in silver and Lucas Browne, 13th silver.  

In the regatta fleet (41 boats), Basile Dion came 1st overall, Max Neary, 2nd bronze and 4th overall.  Our youngest NYC Sailor Aurèle Dion finished 4th the bronze fleet and 6th overall, and was the youngest saucer at the event too, and Louis Trikett finished 7th in the silver fleet.

Fantastic results, well done all!

NYC Optimist Development Programme – Winter 2021

The Optimist Development programme is aimed at sailors who aim to compete in events and other competitions in 2022.  We believe there is demand for a performance group and a development group.  The performance group will consist of already experienced sailors who have competition experience, but did not meet the IODAI rankings in 2021 and qualify for the DOGS Winter training, and also the sailors moving from regatta fleet to main fleet in 2022 competitions.

While there is a focus on development and performance, our plan is based on the NYC’s core values of family, friendship and sporting excellence. 

All sailors and parents MUST READ AND ADHERE TO the Club’s code of conduct to encourage good behaviour and camaraderie: Code-of-Behaviour
