Annalise Takes Laser Radial Title At Italian Olympic Week

Annalise held her lead over the 41-boat fleet to claim the Laser Radial open class title in the final racing of Italian Olympic Week at Follonica.

This result is a significant boost for Annalise’s delayed Laser Radial campaign, although many of her key rivals for Tokyo 2020 gold next year did not contest the Italian championships. Next up are the European Championships in Gdansk just under two weeks time.

NYC Tom Dolan finishes 5th Overall in France’s La Solitaire (formerly Solitaire du Figaro)

CONGRATULATIONS TO TOM!

NYC Country Member Tom Dolan finished a truly remarkable 5th Overall in France’s 51th Solitaire offshore championship on his Figaro £ boat ‘Smurfit Kappa’.

Tom received the VIVI Trophy for the best racer from outside of France.

It is the best international overall placing in the historic French multi stage offshore race series since 1997 when Switzerland’s Dominique Wavre placed second, and a remarkable result considering it is just Dolan’s third challenge and last year he was 33rd.

“ I am delighted to see Tom win and delighted to see that in just the second year since the trophy was donated it really has become established as something that the sailors want to fight for and at the same time they are now getting some well-deserved recognition. ” Said Marcus Hutchinson, who with his wife Megan, donated the trophy last year.

“ And I am pleased to see it go to a fellow Irishman in Tom and he wins if not for being tenth or twelfth but for a great fifth place. He has been consistent this year and that is what La Solitaire is all about. This race so challenging and so complicated and he has worked hard. And it is nice, in a way, that he does not come from Dublin or Cork or one of the Irish sailing centres, his success says anyone can come and do this if they have the will and the determination, anything is possible. Tom has shown that. ”

Colin Morehead & Martin McCarthy are Sailors of the Month for August

It is unusual to have two leading figures sharing the “Sailor of the Month (Services to Sailing)” award. And it surely unique when one is Admiral of the world’s oldest yacht club, the Royal Cork at Crosshaven, in its Tricentenary Year, while the other is Commodore of the National YC in Dun Laoghaire as it marks its 150th Anniversary.

Yet both have shared an indomitable spirit in encouraging and leading their members in whatever sailing and club activity is possible through the COVID-19 crisis, and both, in turn, have seen their members support with a sense of responsible community which is a credit to both clubs, and to Irish sailing generally.
