Once again the weather conditions in Baltimore were superb who would have thought that five days of fantastic sailing conditions could be achieved in February !
A “just for fun” race series was held during the week and prizes awarded accordingly.
1st Sophie Browne TBSC
2nd Richard Hogan HYC
3rd Jill McGinley RCYC
1st Junior was Richard McGinley
The overall main coaches prize for most improved sailor went to Ruth Herlihy (pictured above)
Lots of other fun prizes were awarded by both coaches & some fun ones by the beach master.
Tired sailors and parents packed up boats on Friday afternoon and some headed straight home whereas some enjoyed one more night in Baltimore before hitting the road on Saturday.
As usual everywhere the oppie sailors go they are prone to leave a few “bits & bobs” behind them so if your sailor now only has one glove or is missing a hot sock
check out the lost & found section of the website.
Thank you to craftinsure who sponsored some of the prizes for the event www.craftinsure.ie
Most winter training programs are now ramping up in the lead up to the trials. So next stop the trials in Dunlaoghaire.
See you there
