May 29, 2018 | Junior events

NYC was represented by Hugh O’Connor and Caoimhe Seymour at the Topper Sprint Challenge in Donaghadee Sailing Club over the weekend.
Our two sailors battled the 3m swells in light winds and sunshine.

The format for this challenge was 85 Races over the two days. On day one each person was split into flights where they raced 10 races each.
Hugh O’Connor was in the lead after the first day’s sailing having successfully won 8 out of the ten races placing him at the top of the Gold Fleet. Caoimhe Seymour sailed consistently all day securing a place in the Silver Fleet.

On day two Hugh O’Connor maintained his lead winning all 5 races in the Gold Fleet securing him a place in the Medal race. Caoimhe also sailed really well thus securing her place in the Medal race. The final three races were won by Hugh securing him the overall win in the Gold Fleet.
Caoimhe Seymour came in 4th within the Silver Fleet (her first time racing the full rig!).

Congratulations to both Hugh and Caoimhe.
