The Ulster championships were hosted by County Antrim Yacht Club on the north shore of Belfast Lough. Competitors contended with strong tidal currents on a trapezoidal championship course with steady winds of 12-18 knots. 56 competitors took part overall The ICLA 4 (Laser 4.7) class was won by NYC’s Christian Ennis (pictured left) who has three bullets out of the 6 races. credit to our newest sailors Michael Byrne and Dylan de Vreeze who came in 9th place and 16th place. 


The Radial class (ICLA 6) had the most competitors and Hugh O’Connor (pictured below) achieved a superb 3rd place overall and 2nd Youth Sailor winning the middle race on both days. This was the first serious race for many of our sailors in over 2 years and it was great to see everyone in action again. Other super achievements from NYC sailors included Adam Irvin 10th and Rachel Garvey 25th.

We look forward to the next event, the Connaughts which is to be held in Wexford Sailing and Tennis Club on 17th and 18th July. Places are limited to 100 so get your entries in early.
