Some sunshine and gentle sailing breezes on Dublin Bay allowed a full programme of three races for Wednesday’s (19th July) National Yacht Club Junior Regatta sponsored by Sia Partners NextGen Consulting.

Over 100 boats contested the regatta in an in-harbour fleet at Dun Laoghaire and a main fleet that raced on Dublin Bay. 

RStGYC’s Caoilinn Geraghty-McDonnell was the winner of the Laser 4.7 division, with Emily Cantwell second and Zita Tempany third.

RStGYC’s Jamie White won the Optimists, Holly Cantwell was second with James Crawford, all RSTGYC, third.

The NYC’s Tom Flannery and Alex Trickett were the PY two-handed winners in a 29er.

In the RS Feva, NYC’s  Daniel Burns and John Healy won from RStGYC’s Amy OHalloran, with RSGYC’s Susanna Bloomer and Elizabeth Lyster third.

Prizes were presented by National Yacht Club Commodore Peter Sherry, assisted by the Junior Regatta organiser Rebecca Hall and this Summer’s Senior Instructor Nicola Ferguson.
