Shane McLoughlin and crew Oscar Langan had to be content with 2nd place at last weekends Mirror Northerns held in Royal North of Ireland YC, Cultra. Leading Tiarnain Dickson (Lough Ree) by a single point after 4 races on Saturday, Shane had to be content with 2nd spot after Tiarnain showed his experience to win all 3 races on Sunday. It was a close run thing with the result coming down to the last race with Shane & Oscar only single point behind the winner.
This was Shane and Oscars second runner up spot in Mirror Regionals this year following their 2nd place finish behind Robert Dickson & Meisha Johnston in Mirror Easterns back in early May.
SDC’s Conor Twohig & Jack Gibney had a difficult Sunday after having 2 good 4th places on Saturday.
Attention now turns to preparing for the Mirror Southerns (RCYC) in July and the Nationals (Sligo) and Europeans in August.
