A very successful Topper Leinsters event, the first Regional of the season, was held at the National Yacht Club Dun Laoghaire last weekend. The 35–boat fleet had sailors from 17 different yacht clubs from the North and South of Ireland. Two full days racing with 6 races in total saw Ronan Walsh finish 1st U14 and Adam D’Arcy 1st U17. Lucy Donworth and Eoghan O’ Regan both put in solid performances, finishing all races within the top half of the fleet. Molly Murphy who at thirteen, is the youngest member of the club fleet to compete, is showing great promise for future events.
Sponsored by the Jelly Bean Factory with excellent prizes and a fun social scene, all had a great weekend sailing.
Along with Molly, two of our new club fleet members Lia Berkery Kelly and Maeve O’ Sullivan will shortly be travelling to Lough Erne Yacht Club. All sailors will attend a one day training session given by Chris Penny (RYANI head Topper coach) and the following day will participate in a 3 race Topper Traveller event. Good luck girls!
Club Topper coaching continues this Sunday 10am to 1pm.
