The Irish Tokyo Olympic trials for the women's Laser Radial nomination have been given added spice with the entry of fifteen-year-old Eve McMahon into next March's three trial series. 

The Howth Yacht  Club teenager is the Irish youth champion in the class and this summer became the under-17 Radial world champion.

It brings to four the number of helmswomen now planning to contest the series, including the return of the Rio Olympic silver medalist, Annalise Murphy.

The Laser Radial Youth World Championship at Kingston, Ontario in Canada was something special as Laser designer Bruce Kirby, the man who transformed the world’s solo dinghy sailing, is Canadian. But it was also something special for Eve McMahon of the renowned Howth sailing family, as she was simply flying. Although under 17, at one stage in the open racing she was headed for Silver in the open U19 division as well.

And while at the end on July 31st she’d to be content with the Bronze in the open section, she was winner of the World U17 title to add yet another major trophy to the already enormous McMahon family collection of international and national sailing awards.

There were three McMahon family members from Howth racing in the Laser Radials at this year’s Irish Junior Championship at Crosshaven. But while youngest Jack had to be content with 13th overall, his cousin Eve was very much in improvement mode as the series progressed, notching three fourth places to finish at fifth overall. This made her winner of the girls’ division by five clear points, and thus well entitled to bring the McMahons a second Junior Sailor of the Month accolade for April.
