The Mirror Western Championships were hosted by Lough Ree Yacht Club over the weekend of 7/8th July 2007
RCYC was represented by Orlagh Cotter, Gemma Doran, Laura McCarthy with their crews Stephen Curran, Sarah Fleming and Louise McCarthy. Racing got under way on Saturday morning, after several general recalls, in frustrating conditions with shifts, headers and lifts being the order of the day. Day two produced torrential rain, calms, gusts, thunder and lightning, with more shifty conditions. Laura and Louise McCarthy produced some great starts over the two days to finish third in the Bronze Fleet. They now join the Silver Fleet for the next Regional Event.
