Volvo Irish Sailing Youth Pathway Nationals- Laser Radial Fleet Report

RSGYC dominated the 34 boat Laser Radial fleet taking 5 of the top 6 places

Conditions went from near gale on day 1 to light and shifty with fog on the last 2 days. Race officer, Con Murphy, was constantly having to change courses and position but did manage 7 races with a nail biting finish.

Jack Fahy took 1st place with 2 points to spare over Tom Higgins in 2nd; Jamie McMahon (HYC) 3rd followed by our Peter Fagan, 4th, Toby Hudson Fowler 5th and Hugo Kennedy 6th.  Helen O’ Beirne finished 19th and Sarah Fogarty 29th.

Jack Fahy received the nomination for the Youth Sailing Worlds (formerly ISAFs) and will represent Ireland in Corpus Christi, Texas, next July assuming he fulfils the other qualifying criteria.

Most of the above sailors have recently qualified as sailing instructors and will be able to pass on their wisdom and techniques to our younger members.

RSGYC congratulates them all and we look forward to watching their future sailing endeavours.
