O'Leary through to All Ireland Finals

25th September 2009
O'Leary through to All Ireland Finals

Anthony O'Leary, Nicolas O'Leary and Ben Duncan are the three winners from this afternoon's opening flight of the All Ireland Sailing Championships at Royal Cork YC. Qualification racing for flights two and three will take place tomorrow, before the final series of races commences on Sunday. Racing in Cuskinny Bay in only light westerly winds (6-8 knots) local tidal knowledge played a role downwind. Tomorrow will also see the start of the ISA Junior and Girls All Ireland Sailing Championship 2009. This event will take place in the single handed Olympic class Laser Radial dinghy. Afloat's Bob Bateman was out on the water and his shots are over the fold. First flight results:

1st Anthony O'Leary (1720) RCYC, 4pts 1, 1, 2  (qualified); 2nd Nicholas O'Leary (2008 All Ireland Champion) RCYC, 5pts 2, 2, 1 (qualified); 3rd Ben Duncan (Laser SB3) HYC, 12pts 5, 4, 3 (qualified); 4th Stefan Hyde (ICRA Division 1) RCYC, 14pts 4, 6, 4; 5th Ewen Barry (505) MBSC, 15pts 6, 3, 6; 6th Flor O'Driscoll (J24) RStGYC, 17pts 3, 7, 7; 7th Phil Lawton (Fireball) RISC, 17pts 7, 5, 5
