Eight sailors from RCYC Topper fleet travelled to Blessington, Co Wicklow, last weekend to attend a one day training session on Saturday followed by a Topper Traveller event on Sunday.
Sailors from the North and South attended this Traveller, launching in a strong breeze. Royal Cork competitors all mastered the heavy conditions very well. Lucy Donworth had a great event finishing first U17 and the U14 age group was dominated by Tom Keal, Caoimhe Foster, Molly Murphy and Paddy Counane taking first, second, fourth and seventh places respectively.
Maeve O’ Sullivan and Cian Jones were unlucky to experience gear failure and injury preventing them from completing all the races.
Fortunately all sailors are ready to set sail again for the Bill Jones Memorial Trophy League, which begins tomorrow and will continue for the month of October.
