Congratulations to James Quealy who won the Topaz Eastern Championship last weekend in Malahide. This was a great win for James in very heavy weather conditions which tested his skill and endurance. Well done James.
Well done to John Flynn who took part in the Mitsubishi Youth Qualifiers in Dun Laoghaire. A third place finish combined with first the Nationals in Schull earned him the Combined Trophy and first place in the Irish Laser 4.7 ranking ladder.

The arrangements for the use of the pontoon are included. Some repairs will be carried out to the ramp and pontoon as soon as possible.
