There was no racing for the Laser Radials in Largs, Scotland, yesterday, and with the centre of a weak low sitting over the northern Irish sea today, racing has already been postponed at the venue for today, which means no action for the 15-strong Irish squad attending the event. 

Two more races for the sole Irish sailor, Chris Penney, at the Youth Standard Rig Worlds in Gdynia, Poland, however. Penney let slip a 39th-place finish in his group, followed up with a 14th. That means he drops to 42nd overall, still a very respectable position in a 124-boat fleet.

More news on both of these events as we have it.

Irish Laser Radial sailor Rory Lynch missed out on a bronze at Warnemunde Woche on countback yesterday, finishing on equal points with Pole, Tadeusz Kubiak.

The Blessington sailor posted a 5,3,4 scoreline in his final three races, but with Kubiak having posted a win earlier in the week, he got third place on the 'most firsts, most seconds' rule.

Compatriot Philip Doran from Courtown score a win in race five and joined Lynch in the top ten overall, finishing eighth in the 144-boat fleet.

The event will be a good indicator of performance ability going into the World Championships at Largs, Scotland, starting on July 20.
