Mystery sailor practicing for Mirror Southerns on Lough Derg.
Whilst the Royal Cork laser fleet was enjoying the lovely weather on Lough Derg last weekend at the laser Connaughts, they happened on a lone Mirror putting in some practice for the forthcoming Southerns in Crosshaven. At first glance it appeared to be a random mad-man who’d come unstuck when the wind dropped to zero. Always ready to help a fellow sailor in need, the Royal Cork support RIB, ably helmed by Frank Thompson, went to his rescue – only to discover it was none other than our own Stephen O’Shaughnessy! Well done to the laser fleet, especially Nick Walsh who came home 1st Master (3rd standard overall) and Rebecca O’Shaughnessy (4th in 4.7s). Best of luck to Stephen in his on-going campaign for the Mirror Southerns.
