Optimist Munster Championships 2014

photophoto 1Last weekend the Optimist Munster Championships were hosted by Tralee Bay Sailing Club.

Light winds prevailed for the weekend in what was beautiful Autumn weather.

Royal Cork Sailors once again travelled in numbers and had a very successful weekend. In Junior Silver we had 3 Sailors on the Podium, Cillian Foster in 5th, Harry Twomey in 3rd and James Hassett in 2nd Place.

The Junior  Fleet was won by the Junior National Champion, Micheal O’Suilleabhan from Kinsale and the Royal Cork’s Aoife Byrne had a fantastic event finishing in 4rd place overall.

In the Senior Silver Fleet Jennifer O’Shaughnessy came 3rd and Sophie Crosbie had a brilliant event, winning the Senior Silver Fleet.

Cathal O’Regan finished best of the Royal Cork Sailors with a 3rd overall in the Senior Fleet followed closely by Harry Durcan in 4th

The Regatta Sailors showed the future is safe with Patrick Bruen, Charlie Neville, Anna Carroll, Michael Crosbie, Stephen Cunnane, Eva Spillane, Jamie Venner, Lucy Bateman and Alanna Twomey all putting in fantastic performances.

Congratulations and well done to all our Sailors who competed in what was the final Regional event of 2014 and the final qualification event for Trials 2015. Congratulations also to all of our Sailors who qualified for Trials in what was a long and demanding qualification process.

The Burns Trophy will continue this Saturday. Can parents please sign up for Duty.
