Over 30 junior laser sailors from across the country converged on the RCYC last week for ‘Laser Week’. The 3 day clinic featured Annalise Murphy and Prof O’Connell as lead coaches. Annalise coached from the water with the teenagers, who were all delighted when she capsized on video – it happens to the best of them!
The week finished with a 2 day regatta. Well done to RCYC’s Nick Walsh who won in the Standard Rig. Erica Ruigrok from Rush who won for the 4.7s with RCYC’s Thomas McGrath and Richard Thompson taking 2nd and 3rd respectively – well done lads. The Radial section saw brothers Cian and Patrick Cahill from RSG claiming first and second and their fellow Dublin sailor Aoife Hopkins of Howth Yacht Club taking 3rd place. A great week was had by all and thanks to Mark Whitaker and Nick Walsh for organising it.
