The sailors are waiting patiently with an AP flying for the wind to build inshore for the last day of the Mapfre Euromed Cup at St Paul’s Bay in Malta.
It’s all to play for in the ILCA 6 fleet, where Royal St George sailor Daniel O’Connor lies in fourth place overall, three points behind 2022 ILCA 4 European champion Irene De Tomas Perello. A further three points ahead is local Mathew Flores, with Dmytro Karabadzhak 9 points clear and in the lead.
Emily Conan had a superb day yesterday, especially in race 5, where she scored second place. She goes into today lying in eighth place overall, and she is joined by her fellow Royal St George sailor Jessica Riordan in the top 10 after some very consistent sailing. Howth’s Charlie Keating closely follows them in 11th overall.
In the Optimist fleet, Carolina Carra remains the best Irish performer in a very competitive fleet. She had a good day yesterday, again sailing very consistently, and finished the day in 60th place overall. Jude Hynes-Knight sailing under Tralee Bay Sailing Club’s burger is in 80th overall and Felix Dion, sailing from the National Yacht Club, is 88th.
