Mave, Aoife and Grace @ Malahide Topper Traveller

With the Topper fleet expanding at Sutton this season it was great to see a good turnout from the Club at last weekends Topper Traveller event hosted by Malahide Yacht Club.

Sunday saw Maeve Kellet, Ella Fitzgerald, Grace Gill and Aoife Lowe launch in what was for most of them the strongest winds they have raced in to-date. For Maeve, Grace and Aoife it was their first Topper event and the first chance to race Toppers outside Club racing and our recent Club regatta.

4 races were held with victory going to Max Passberger from Waterford Harbour Sailing Club. Maeve took 18th overall, with Grace in 22nd with Aoife in 26th. Ella started superbly with 2 x 7th places but gear failure led to a retirement in race 3 and Ella unfortunately could not compete in race 4. But a great showing by all 4 of our sailors.

Well done all and thanks to the parents for getting the sailors and their boats to Malahide. The full set of results are available HERE.
