Royal Cork Laser 4.7 sailors Seafra Guilfoyle and Cian Byrne secured 1st and 2nd places respectively at last weekends Ulster Championship hosted by Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club.
In conditions ranging from no more than 8-10knts on Saturday to 20knts + on Sunday (last race having been cancelled due to excessive wind resulting in a few broken full rig masts and booms) it was a true test of skill and endurance.
Seafra has been hoovering up the titles of late as this 1st place result comes on the back of winning the Munster Championship, Mitsubishi Youth Championship and all on consecutive weekends.
These two have enjoyed international success already this season at Europa Cup events in the under 16 age category with Cian finishing 7th at Garda and Seafra securing a spectacular 2nd place in La Rochelle.
