Eve McMahon rounded off her regatta in the ILCA 6 Women's European Championship in 16th position in Andora, Italy, today.

The 19-year-old is in her first full season at senior level and making steady progress after her triple Gold medal season in 2022.

Good breeze of around 10 knots and a good swell allowed three more races at the Circolo Nautico Andora in Italy.

McMahon, a Paris 2024 prospect, will work on her boat speed for the Trofeo Princesa Sofia in Palma, Mallorca, at the start of April.
