North Sails clients finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th overall in the recent Irish Dragon Championships held at Glandore Harbour Sailing Club.

As Afloat.ie previously reported, it was a tough four day series with "Phantom", helmed by Neil Hegarty and crewed by David Williams and Peter Bowring emerging victorious in a tight final race.

An indication of how tough the racing was is that multiple Dragon Gold Cup, World Champion and Olympic medallist Paul Ricard Hoj-Jensen finished fourth overall.

Results

1. "Phantom" - Neil Hegarty, David Williams, Peter Bowring - NORTH SAILS
2. "Jaguar" - Martin Byrne, Adam Winkelmann, Mark Pettit - NORTH SAILS (partial inventory)
3. "Little Fella" - Cameron Good, Simon Furney, Henry Kingston - NORTH SAILS
4. "Danish Blue" - Paul Ricard Hoj-Jensen - NORTH SAILS

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
