#420– Royal Cork Yacht Club sailors Patrick Crosbie and Grattan Roberts who will sail for Ireland in the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Worlds in July won the 420 dinghy Connacht Championships hosted on May 7th by Galway Bay Sailing Club.
A superb weekend's racing was had by the small but competitive 11-boat fleet. Conditions varied from light and variable on Sunday morning increasing to a moderate southerly later. Strong rain squalls made for exhilarating conditions on the Monday where crews and boats were well tested.
Second overall were Royal St George pairing Adam Hyland and Bill Staunton while the Malahide duo of Lizzy McDowell and Orlagh Thompson took third.
The 420 Munster Championship originally scheduled for RCYC in June has been rescheduled to a weekend in September – the new date will be confirmed shortly.
