The 2010 ISA Optimist Junior Pathway Champion is Seafra Guilfoyle from Royal Cork Yacht Club. Sean Gambier-Ross from Kinsale Yacht Club placed second, followed by Peter McCann from Royal Cork Yacht Club.
Seafra Guilfoyle counts four race wins within the six boat series in the 26 boat fleet. For the 13 year old this will more than likely be his last year completing in the Optimist class but on coming ashore Guilfoyle commented: "There was good competition and good weather."
When asked about sailing in his home club, he said he enjoyed: "all the coaching and there are loads of people to compete with."
The top five Laser radials had a tight three-race battle giving a great on-the-water spectacle whilst Cian O'Regan and Scotty Flanagan ripped up Roaringwater Bay with three bullets in the 420 class. However, it's Jane Butler and Jenny Andreasson who retain a slim one-point lead at the top of the fleet after six races. Dun Laoghaire sailor Mattie O'Dowd leads the Laser Radials from Courtown's Philp Doran, while Finn Lynch has blazed a scorching trail at the top of the Topper fleet, with wins in six out of eight races.
Racing resumes tomorrow for all other classes.
