Congratulations to Trevor Bolger and Grace O’Beirne, who won the Regatta and Senior fleets respectively at the Opitimist Ulsters in Skerries this weekend. Not a bad weekend for Team George Racing.
The Opi Ulsters began with very light conditions. Unfortunately, it was too light to get racing underway on the Saturday due to the tide and a lack of wind.
Sunday was an earlier start, with the first gun at 10am. All sailors did well to get down on time and get boats set up for another day of light sailing. There were 3 races in total, but no discards which was unfortunate for some sailors.
The Main fleet was split into Junior & Senior. Grace O’Beirne won Senior, Overall & 1st girl. Tom Higgins was winning the Junior fleet, however he had a protest that went against him from the 1st race, which set him back to 15th. Trevor Bolger also won the Regatta fleet, while Moss Simington came 2nd.
All sailors from Team George who travelled sailed extremely well considering the challenging tide and weather conditions. We’re now looking forward to the next event- Leinsters!
