Howth Yacht Club continue to march ahead as early adopters of new media, streaming details from their HYC Helmsman's Championships in real-time over the web. Using a combination of live tweets from Twitter and streaming vide on UStream (courtesy of Noel Davidson) the club was able to present a live-action sailing feed from their racing area.

10 teams from HYC competed in the HYC Helmsmans Championship. The teams were divided into 2 heats with 5 teams racing on Saturday morning and 5 teams racing on Saturday afternoon. Both heats were hotly contested and 4 teams from each heat progress through to the final on Sunday.
Heat 1 was won by Michael Duffy, followed by Emmet Ryan in 2nd, Scott Flanigan in 3rd, Garrett May in 4th and John Faller in 5th. Heat 2 was won by Laura Dillon, followed by Alistair Kissane in 2nd, Dermot Skehan in 3rd, Paul McMahon in 4th and Jenny O’Leary in 5th.

The top 8 teams progressed through to the finals on Sunday and the final top 3 results were:
1.    Laura Dillon and crew
2.    Garrett May and crew
3.    Emmet Ryan and crew

Dillon successfully defended her title. Full blow-by-blow details from the racecourse are available both on the HYC_Events Twitter stream and Noel Davidson's Ustream channel which houses the video.
