Cian Byrne was victorious in the 4.7 class at the UKLA Laser Inland Championships held in Grafham Water Sailing Club this weekend. The event was shortened due to the absence of wind yesterday, which prevented any racing. Cian, the only Irish sailor to compete in this class, scored two first places and a fifth.
In the Radial Class, Séafra Guilfoyle was fourth in a fleet of 120 boats and the winner of the Under 16 section. Dermot Lyden finished 74th in his first international event in this class.
Meanwhile, at the National Yacht Club, Patrick Crosbie won the ISA National 4.7 Squad Trials in a fleet of over 20 boats. Following Patrick were Ross O’Sullivan and Sorcha Ní Shuilleabháin from Kinsale Yacht Club making it 1-2-3 for the South!
