Last weekend saw the Ulster Optimist Championships run from Malahide Yacht Clubs Broadmeadows Clubhouse. Two of our young Opi sailors competed with Abby Kinsella taking part in only her 3rd Junior event completing every race despite the weather.
Oisin Kelly in the Regatta fleet finished 5th and must be looking forward to his first Junior event. The Optimist Nationals are in Lough Derg starting 15th August and we would hope to have a few additional Club entries. Full results from Optimist Ulsters are here on IODAI website.
The coming weekend sees the Mirror Southerns in Lough Derg, which hosted the Mirror Worlds in 2013. There will be at least one Sutton boat with Oscar Langan and Lughaidh Croasdel looking to consolidate the great start they have had since moving into the Gold fleet. The Clubs other Mirror Conor Twohig is on holidays after the completing exams but will be back for the Mirror Nationals in Sutton starting July 22nd. Good luck to Oscar this weekend.
