Broken toe straps were no obstacle for Adam Hyland this week when the Glenageary junior took an unexpected dip in the Baltic. He finished tenth and top Irish boat at the German Optimist National championships.  The top result was from a field of 300. Full results HERE.

The 10 strong Irish optimist development team returned on Saturday night after a very successful trip to Kiel for the German Optimist Nationals. In particular Adam Hyland should be very happy with his 11th place in this world class fleet.

The quality of the fleet at the German nationals is much higher than at German oppie sailors have to qualify for the nationals and the top 20% of the German fleet (220 sailors) and with Foreign  participants making up the balance of 310.  Most of the foreign competitors teams were made up of World team sailors who are excluded from competing in the Europeans.

The Irish team spent 3 days training and acclimatizing to the local conditions with the German, Danish and other worlds teams.

The competitors competed in very mixed conditions ranging from very light to 20k plus.

The Irish Finished as follows:

11th Adam Hyland RstGYC
56th Sophie Brown TBSC/RCYC
75th Sean Waddilove SSC/HYC
77th Robert Dickson HYC
116th Fergus Flood HYC
