14 year old Finn Lynch of Blessington Sailing Club is the new British Topper Champion after posting a string of consistent results at Pwhelli Sailing Club in North Wales this weekend.

From a 15 race series the St. Mary's Carlow school boy took six first places in a fleet of over 300 boats.

The rising star of Irish junior sailing, who is already a world silver medallist in the class, beat Brtiains' Edward Jones by a margin of nine points.

In July, Lynch took control of the Irish Championships in July to count nothing but podium finishes on his way to the national title against a fleet of 66 in Carlingford.

Earlier this year Lynch also cleared up at the ISA Youth Nationals winning seven out of eleven races in Schull.

Des Cahill, RTE sports presenter, kept the crowd entertained acting as MC for the event. Luke Fitzgerald, Irish rugby star and Ciaran Whelan, former Dublin GAA star presented the awards to the young sports stars including Blessington Sailing Club's Finn Lynch.

The Lynch family have been active participants of the ISA Performance Pathway in previous years with Finn's older brother's Ben and Rory also doing very well in sailing. The fourteen year old talented sportsman was previously presented with a special award from his school, St. Mary's Academy, CBS, Carlow for his outstanding sailing achievements last year.
