No Medals for Ireland at Delta Lloyd But Irish Moth & Kitesurfer Make Welcome Debut

26th May 2014
No Medals for Ireland at Delta Lloyd But Irish Moth & Kitesurfer Make Welcome Debut

#sailingdeltalloyd – The 2014 Delta Lloyd Regatta came to a conclusion on Saturday 24, May with all classes completing their series, including eight medal races. There was no Irish medals after the highs of Hyeres a fortnight ago but there was an extra dimension with demonstation sailing – and Irish participation – in both the kitesurf and Moth divisions in this Eurosaf event.

A last race win could not give Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern (silver in Hyeres) a top ten finish, the 49er duo were 11th overall. Finn debutante Robert O'Leary finished 13. James Espey was 20th in the mens Laser. The Sonar trio headed by John Twomey was seventh. Dublin Moth sailor Rory Fitzpatrick was sixth and Kitesurfer Jade O'Connor was 14th.

Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign (GBR) had already taken the gold in the 49er class after three theatre style medal races just off from the harbour mouth on Friday.

On Saturday there were eight more medal races, nine final races for the remaining boats, six races for the Paralympic fleets, four races for the Moth class and the full round robin series for Kites. It was a very busy day in Medemblik with the wind changing from a nice 12-14 knots early on, to cloudy day with light winds and finally a nice breeze and sunshine to finish the day.
