A large crowd gathered for the final time in 2015 at Foynes Yacht Club to present the prizes for the Silver Refrigeration Laser & Topper November Series followed by the annual Christmas table quiz in aid of the RNLI.
In the Silver Refrigeration Laser & Topper Series the results in the Senior Category were 1st Tadhg O’Loinsigh (TBSC), 2nd Simon McGibney (FYC), 3rd Peter Clifford (FYC). In the Junior Category 1st Dylan Reidy, 2nd Mary McCormack, 3rd Anna Lowes. Silver Refrigeration generously sponsored beautifully commissioned glass plaques for the winners and also awarded all the sailors in the junior category with specially commissioned medals.
The club had a packed house for the RNLI quiz with eight rounds of both nautical and general knowledge questions. At the end of the eight rounds three tables were tied and after a tie-break round of eight questions Donal & Una McCormack’s table emerged as winners. A raffle was held afterwards with spot prizes being donated by club members. A total of €523 was raised on the night for the RNLI. The commodore James McCormack thanked everyone who turned out to support such a worthy cause & wished all the members & their families a Happy New Year & hope to see you all in 2016.
