Summer Optimist Event – September 4th & 5th

The Royal St George Yacht Club hosted an end of Summer Optimsit event over the weekend of September 4th and 5th.  The event which counts as an IODAI ranking event saw 120 sailors compete across 3 fleets.  In winds of 10 – 15 knots, it was a very long day on the water on Sunday to achieve 3 races.  Junior and Senior main fleets sailed 6 races, with one discard, and Regatta fleet sailed 7 races with 2 discards.  The sailors enjoyed overall warm and pleasant weather conditions over the 2 days. 

The NYC was represented in both the main fleet by Theo Madigan who performed well and Ava Ennis, who won the 5th race and finished 6th overall.

In the junior main fleet, Louise Hanley from NYC won first prize in the Bronze Fleet.  The other participants from NYC in the junior main fleet were Felix Dion, Lucas Browne and Jonathan Dempsey.

It was in the regatta fleet that NYC scooped most prizes with a strong performance from Max Neary, who won race 3 and finished 5th in the fleet.  Basile Dion finished 8th and won best under 10 sailor, while 7 year old Aurèle Dion was recognised as the youngest sailor of the event and delivered a very strong performance that saw him finish 23rd.   

Prizes were presented by RStGYC Commodore Richard O’Connor, and Regatta fleet sailors Amelia Chapman, Jacob Browne and Louis Trickett wore their medals for the afternoon as they celebrated their achievements.

Elmo Cup Team Racing Event

The Elmo cup took place over the weekend of the 28th and 29th of August in the RStGYC. It was a fantastic event thanks to great organisation, fierce competition and lovely weather. Both days brought winds of 5-10 knots, which was perfect for our team racing. The NYC entered 2 teams of 8 sailors – 6 helms, 6 crew and 2 subs. This meant more members got a chance to participate in the great event. The sailors on team one were Connor Gorman, Hugh O’Connor, Natasha Hemeryck, Georgie McCarthy, Hugh Turvey, Alex Trickett, Hugh Meagher and Ellen Madigan. This team narrowly missed out on a place in gold fleet on day one, but managed to dominate the silver fleet and won it on day two. The the second NYC team included Jack Hall, Cillian Cusack, Caoimhe Byrne, Theo Madigan, Scott Graham, Sophie Gorman, David Duffy and Dylan DeVreeze. This was a strong team who finished second in silver fleet. Overall, the event was very social and it was great to meet people from all around Ireland – there were teams from RCYC, LDYC and Glandore Yacht Club!
