36 IRL1501 James HASSETT M 12 MBSC
After a great days sailing on Saturday, both main fleet and regatta completed 4 races each. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse yesterday with racing being abandoned. Our 4 sailors performed really well and the club should be very proud of them. In the Regatta fleet both Abby Hughes (1st under 11, 4th overall) & Luke Hegarty (7th overall) had great a great weekend. Meanwhile in the main fleet Kate Horgan finished in 10th position overall and Richard McSweeney sailing a great event and finishing 2nd overall. Well done to all.
