Warmest congratulations to NYC’s Charlie Cullen who was the top Irish sailor in the Laser 4.7 National Championships last weekend at the Lough Derg Yacht Club.
Charlie, who was expertly coached by our own Finn Lynch, finished in third place overall behind event winner Edoardo Valletta from Italy and runner up Atlee Kohl from the US Virgin Islands. Charlie was the top Irish sailor.
The Championship was superbly hosted by Lough Derg Yacht Club with the National Yacht Club’s International Race Officer Con Murphy in charge. It was run in very testing conditions over a series of nine races. Charlie won the fifth race – a superb achievement – and had three splendid third place finishes out of a 37 boat fleet.
