DUNGARVAN SAILOR NATIONAL CHAMPION

 

ISA Youth National Championship (under 19 years)

Laser 4.7 National Champion.

Congratulations to John Flynn who recently won the ISA Youth National Championship

The four day event was held in Schull and the weather conditions varied from fresh winds and rough seas on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday to very light winds on Thursday. There were 30 sailors from clubs all over Ireland in the competition.

John sailed consistently and after 8 races started the last day one point ahead. He finished the ninth race in fifth which put him in second place by one point. It all depended on the last race, John used the freshening breeze and the filling cross tide perfectly to get second place finish and win the regatta and the national title.
