In the same weekend that Dunmore East ICRA sailors won the Sovereign's Cup, Waterford Harbour dinghy sailors were strutting their stuff on the international dinghy circuit. Geoff Power and James McCann took a creditable seventh overall in a massive 135–boat 420 fleet at Kieler Woche in Germany.
Earlier this season, Power and McCann, in their first year in the 420 together, secured top spot at the ISA Youth Pathways in Ballyholme in April.
Dun Laoghaire sisters Nicola and Fiona Ferguson were 83rd, Gemma McDowell and Emma Gallagher were 90th and Grace O'Beirne (nursing a shoulder injury) and Kathy Kelly were 104th.
The crews return to Cork this weekend for the Irish 420 Championships as part of Royal Cork's Dinghy Fest.
