Another good weekend for the Dun Laoghaire Topper Group at the Topper Southerns in Dunmore East
The Dun Laoghaire Topper Group had another good weekend of racing at the Topper Southerns in Waterford Harbour Sailing Club in Dunmore East this past weekend. Caoimhe Byrne won the Youth Ladies category, coming 8th overall, Caoimhe Seymour came 3rd in the Junior Ladies category Ella Fitzgerald earned herself another 3rd place in the 4.2 sail fleet, Adam Irvin came 6th overall, including winning 2 races outright and Jacques Murphy came 10th overall. James Fitzgerald, Daniel O’Connor and Ethan Spain also enjoyed the varied conditions over the course of the weekend. Those variations went from beautiful sun and nice brisk sailing winds on Saturday – where the organisers managed to get 4 races in, to heavy rain and a big swell on Sunday to make it much more challenging for the final 2 races.
A quick reminder that THIS FRIDAY, 28th June, is the closing date for entry to the National Championships, a 3-day event limited to 99 boats which is being held in the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club, Holywood, Co. Down on the following weekend of 5-7th July.
