Displaying items by tag: Sailor of the Month September 2010

Oisín van Gelderen has won the Irish Speed Sailing Championship for 2010 after a phenomenal season.
The Afloat.ie/Irish Independent Sailor of the Month for September 2010 had a clean slate of results for the year, posting the fastest speeds over 500m and by 10-second average.
But the highlight of his year was undoubtedly his personal record-breaking speed trials in West Kirby, near Liverpool (SEE VIDEO BELOW) where he reached a maximum speed of 47.17 knots (87.36 kmph).
"I am looking forward to 2011, and hope to improve my speeds, and spend a lot
more time back in the waves this year too," he said.
Van Gelderen dedicated his title win to the memory of Surfdock founder Alan Harris and Irish 500m speed record holder John Kenny, who both passed away in 2010.
