The PRO had spent the day trying everything under the sun he could think of to try to get the event moving. He kept sending RIBS around to check out the wind in various areas of the harbour but all to no avail as the wind never settled and even when 2 knots or so appeared it simply didn’t last.
Following the decision to abandon the final today the CEO of the ISA, Harry Hermon, advised a new Notice of Race will be published shortly and the eight helmsmen involved will be invited to participate in a new final consisting of five races on a date to be agreed. The eight participants concerned are as follows:
ISA Irish Junior Championship:
It was a very long day of sailing in very light conditions for the Juniors on the second and final day of their Championship. PRO Richard Leonard raced the fleet on the Curlane Bank and was very fortunate to be able to get in three races in extremely difficult conditions.
The final result saw Philip Doran of Courtown Harbour SC taking first place with Rory Lynch of Blessington Sailing Club second and Ross Vaughan of Royal North of Ireland YC third.
In the Girls Fleet Sophie Murphy of Quoile YC took first place with Emma Geary of RCYC second and Katherine Geoghegan of Dungarvan Harbour SC third.
