As a large contingent of club dinghies head north to Ballyholme Y.C. next week , the Carroll family will have more complex logistics over and above the average family travelling as a result of all four children competing.
Active members of both the Royal Cork and Kinsale Yacht Clubs , the Carroll sailors may well be making a little history in competing at the same venue in four different types of dinghies.
The youngest Anna, will be competing in the optimist trials , while older sister Amy will compete in the laser 4.7 fleet. Not to be outgunned, their brothers Mikey will compete in the two man 420 dinghy, while the younger of the two, Davy will be pitching for a strong finish in the Topper class. We wish the Carroll’s and all our sailors competing the very best of luck over the four days of scheduled racing.
