#Mirror - Caolan Croasdell and Alexander Farrell of Lough Ree Yacht Club were the best of the Irish at the Mirror Worlds in Falmouth this week, placing 13th overall in the 51-boat fleet.

Highlights for the Irish contingent over the five days of sailing from Monday 31 July to Friday 4 August included a best finish of fifth in Race 2 by Ben Graf and Hannah Smith of the same club, who placed 15th overall.

Graf and Smith also scored a top-ten finish in Race 7 alongside Croasdell and Farrell.

Of the other Irish pairs in competition, Sarah White and Eoghan Duffy of Sligo Yacht Club finished 20th, Oscar Langan and Lughaidh Croasdell (Clontarf Y&BC/Lough Ree YC) weren’t far behind at 24th, while  Matthew White and Isaac Marsden (Sligo YC) were 37th in the fleet.
