Last weekend four of our Topper Sailors travelled to Wexford Sailing and Tennis Club to compete in the 2014 Topper Munster Championships.
Our sailors not only enjoyed a competitive regatta they also had time to have a tour of the local Wexford sights. The sailors joined forty three others from North and South of Ireland for the two day event which brought mixed conditions, light on Saturday and progressing gradually to heavy winds on Sunday. Maeve O’ Sullivan had another solid performance finishing 6th overall and 3rd U 14. Molly Murphy finished very well with a 9th. Tom Keal had a great first National event finishing 11th and Cian Jones also kept the Royal Cork flag flying towards the top of the fleet finishing 16th. The message was clear “Our Topper sailors are on their way up”.
The sailors were joined for the weekend by Peter Martin who was recently welcomed into our Topper fleet along with four other sailors, increasing our fleet to 10. Due to the generosity of Dr Fielding our club now owns two Toppers which can be chartered by any sailor wishing to participate in Mixed Dinghy racing or club coaching.
