SUCCESSFUL YEAR FOR JUNIOR MEMBER

Dungarvan Harbour  Sailing  Club

A brilliant racing season for  John Flynn.
John won the Overall Laser 4.7 National Championship in Ballyholme this weekend
There were eight  races over three  days with forty sailors from twenty one clubs from all over Ireland.

The regatta was sailed in mixed conditions with light winds on Thursday and increasing wind strengths on Friday to gale conditions on Saturday. Sunday’s racing was called off because of the strong wind and huge surf in the slip area. This gave eight races sailed with one discard.
John Result:  1, 1, 5, (22), 11, 2, 3, 1, Nett 24   Four points ahead of next boat

This is a kind of Triple Crown because he won all three national titles this year.
