Royal Cork Sailors Return From Land Of Sun and Superyachts

Sues I phone 082

Twelve international teams completed a combined total of sixty six races
in order to decide the winner of the 2013 Monaco European optimist team
racing event last weekend. In the end it was team Switzerland who landed
the title for the second year running.

Our own Irish and royal cork team battled very well in the exceptionally light airs
experienced over the first two days of the event and finished a very credible
seventh position, with strong wins over Belgium and Italy on the third and final
day of breeze.

The event was organised over five days and our four sailors, Rebecca O
Shaughnessy , Ronan Walsh, Luke McGrath and Lucy Donworth under the
watchful eye of their coach George Kingston, enjoyed some amazing
hospitality from Monaco yacht club.

A special thank you to Lisheen Mine who very kindly sponsored the required
team gear and who continue to support the development of youth team racing
in the club.
