Light and challenging conditions greeted the 95 entries for the Leinster Laser Championships at Howth Yacht Club over the weekend. Local Howth sailor Ewan McMahon took the honours in the Standard fleet, Peter Fagan (RStGYC) won the Radials and Alana Coakley ((RStGYC) won the 4.7 title.

The Radials were the largest fleet with 40 competitors taking to the water with the title undecided going into the last race. Peter Fagan (RStGYC) won out from a very tight grouping with single points separating Aisling Keller ((LDYC/RIYC) in 2nd (also 1st Lady) and Aoife Hopkins (HYC) in 3rd place. All three sailors shared all but the last finishing gun with the last race being won by Nicholas Reeser from Lauderdale YC/ NYC. In the Master category Sean Craig ( RStGYC) took 1st prize. Jess Winton (Ballyholme) won the Silver fleet.

The 4.7 fleet of 29 sailors was also as competitive with 6 individual race winners. Alana Coakley (RStGYC) took the Leinster title (and 1st Lady) from Dylan McEvoy (HYC) with Emily Riordan (RStGYC) in 3rd. The Silver fleet prize was won by Aoife McMahon (HYC).

Ewan McMahon (HYC) dominated the Standard rig with 4 wins and a 2nd place. Ronan Wallace (Wexford HBTC) was very consistent with a string of 2nds and 3rds and a final race win to finish 2nd overall. There was a great tussle for 3rd place with David Quinn (HYC) in 3rd holding off the challenge from Paul McMahon (HYC/ KIORA) in 4th. David Quinn won 1st Master with Ross O’Leary 2nd Master and John Simms 3rd.

Excellent race management under PRO David Lovegrove ensured 3 races on the Saturday despite the tricky conditions which included one wind shift of 180 degrees. All 6 of the scheduled races were completed.

The organisers were most grateful for the huge turnout at the BBQ on Saturday evening. A free raffle for competitors saw Dylan McEvoy (HYC) win a voucher for boat insurance from CraftInsure with delighted Glen Fisher (RSTGYC) winning the top prize of a new Radial sail.

The event concluded with a prize giving. After some short speeches, the main prizes were presented by Vice Commodore Ian Byrne. The prizes were sourced from local artist Carol O’Mara which were much appreciated. Silver fleets prizes sponsored by CH Marine for the Radial and 4.7 fleets were highly sought after.

A fourth scored by National Yacht Club's Nell Staunton in race eight moves the Dubliner up to eighth overall in the Laser Radial Girls class of the 2018 Youth Sailing World Championships at Corpus Christi Yacht Club in Texas with a single race left to sail today.

The Dublin school girl had another solid performance yesterday with her best result of the week, counting all her results to date in the top 13. 46 are competing in the girls class.

"The Dublin school girl had another solid performance yesterday"

Six classes have been clinched with a race to spare in this year's championships.

In the boys Laser Radial class, Jack Fahy of Lough Derg and the Royal St. George Yacht Club is 20th from 58.

The fourth day of the 48th Youth Sailing World Championships saw six class winners crowned gold medalists.

The Youth Worlds has become the pinnacle sailing event for teenagers aged 16-18. Past gold medalists have gone on to very successful careers in the upper echelons of the sport.

Whether American Geronimo Nores (Boys’ RS:X), Islay Watson of Great Britain (Girls’ RS:X), Argentinians Teresa Romairone and Dante Cittadini (Nacra 15), Josh Armit of New Zealand (Laser Radial Boys’), Charlotte Rose of the U.S.A. (Laser Radial Girls’) and Joseph Hermus and Walter Henry (USA) (Boys’ 420) follow in those footsteps remains to be seen.

Tonight they’re revelling in the fact that they’ve won a gold medal at a world championships with one race to spare.

Friday is the final day of competition in Corpus Christi where the remaining podium positions will be decided. Racing starts at 12:00 local time with one race scheduled per fleet. -- Sean McNeill

The Laser dinghy league was run over the three consecutive Saturdays during the National Yacht Club, Royal Irish Yacht Club and Royal St. George YC Regattas.

A total of 28 Lasers participated over the 6 races – 16 in the standard Laser rig and 12 in the Laser Radial rig. 

The largest fleet of 23 Lasers competed on the last Saturday in a challenging but rewarding course off Seapoint in Dublin Bay.

"A total of 28 Lasers participated over the six races"

The hour-long races provided great racing for all levels with great competition and provided a great experience for some newcomers to the fleet.

Overall Results: 


  1. Sean Craig
  2. Judy O’Beirne
  3. Shirley Gilmore


  1. Ronan Wallace
  2. Ross O’Leary
  3. Eoin Delap

In the Awards section of the prizegiving, BEST NEWCOMER went to Ali Robinson, MOST IMPROVED went to Richard Tate and BEST ATTITUDE went to Michael Delaney!

Ross o leary shirley gilmoreThere were a range of prizes presented for the inaugural league

The most Coveted Award for the Best ‘FEIC UP CUP’ went to Marc Coakley, with Theo Lyttle and Damian Maloney not far behind.

  1. Marc Coakley – for launching the wrong boat from the dinghy park – Marc was just about to push off the slip when he realised he launched some kids 4.7 rigged Laser while his own STD Laser was still on its launching trolley in the dinghy park!
  2. Theo Lyttle – for mixing up his 'Port' and 'Starboard' and hitting a few boats on the racecourse on one Saturday. ‘Jetlag’ was the excuse as he had an expensive evening buying apology pints.
  3. Damian Maloney – for the most spectacular downwind capsize you will ever see in 8 knots of wind on the last Saturday racing! But he rebounded with a spectacular bullet in the following race.

DBSC Laser fleet race on Tuesday evenings during the summer with training on Sunday morning for newcomers. Open to new and returning Laser sailors – it provides great racing for all levels and regular training that suits all abilities.

Thanks to the NYC, RIYC and RstGeorge YC for supporting the Laser League initiative.

In a month, where Irish Laser sailors are celebrating a U21 World bronze medal, the Class returns to Howth Yacht Club for an open event after a long absence. HYC will host this two-day event which kicks off on Saturday 21st July.

For the almost 40 sailors competing in HYC's own Frostbite Series, it will be a welcome change to enjoy some Howth racing in warm conditions! Race management will be of the usual high standard with PRO David Lovegrove and team in charge. The race area is second to none, with a short sail to the race track between Ireland's Eye and Lambay Island which typically offers perfect downwind wave conditions for the Laser and fair winds across the course.

Howth boasts several very talented contenders, some of whom should feature on the leaderboards

Although the competition will be of the highest calibre, Howth boasts several very talented contenders, some of whom should feature on the leaderboards so watch out for Crawford, Hopkins, McEvoy, McMahon, and Wallace. Of note is Ewan McMahon in the Standard Rig and Aoife Hopkins in the Radial rig. Both are aspiring Olympic candidates and this event is a great warm-up before the World Championships in Aarhus, Demark in August.

As this is one of the last championship events for the Masters sailors before the World Championships in Dun Laoghaire, competition for the coveted ‘first master’ will be fierce. As some places are still available for the World Championships, and the entry deadline for the event is August 1st, this event may also be a final chance for Irish Laser Masters to qualify for the big event in early September. Given the number of Masters sailors in Howth, this could be a prime opportunity to get a late place. There may not be another Laser Masters Worlds in Ireland for 20 years!

Shortly after racing there will be a BBQ to help refuel competitors and give everyone time to catch up and recall the events of the day.

The event has several sponsors which will ensure some great prizes and après sailing. So a much-appreciated thank you goes to BKS - Brendan O’Brien, CH Marine, CraftInsure, Investwise – Dave Quinn and MDM – Jim and Tom McMahon for supporting this event.

Early entry cost is €50 and is available until midnight on 13th July. Full entry cost of €75 will then apply until 2100 hours on 18th July and the online entry will close.

Registration will be available at the event on Friday night and Saturday morning. Online entry and all relevant documents can be found here

As reported earlier, at the U21 Laser World Championships in Poland today 19-year-old Ballyholme Yacht Club Sailor Liam Glynn from Bangor, Co. Down in Northern Ireland took a bronze medal from a fleet of 133 competitors spanning forty countries. The result adds to Ireland's youth medal haul in the Laser class over the past decade.

Glynn secured the medal in difficult shifty conditions on the Baltic Sea. On an outstanding penultimate day, scoring two third places, put him in pole position coming into the final day. A strong charge today by the two German sailors ultimately meant he missed the title but such was the strength of his series he still took the bronze medal.

As a junior, Glynn won the Topper World Championships in 2013. This second World Championship medal bodes well for his future potential in the Olympic discipline, where his main rival for the single Tokyo place is Dun Laoghaire's Finn Lynch a sailor who also performed at U21 level.

As readers will recall, Ireland has previous success at World Radial youth level. Nine years ago, Wexford’s Philip Doran took the Under 17 world championship title in Japan in 2010. A year earlier he won the Under 16 title. In that same year, 2009, Annalise Murphy, then aged 19, won the Under 21 world title. 

Glynn's rival Lynch took bronze in the Men's Radial Worlds, silver in the Europeans and gold in the U21 category at the Laser European and World Championships in 2013 on his home waters of Dun Laoghaire. 

Today's qualifies Glynn for the Irish Sailing Senior Team in 2019, and he will now join this team to compete at the Olympic qualifier in Aarhus, Denmark in August

RYA Master Laser Sailor Mike Matan made clear his intentions for September's World Championships on Dublin Bay taking a clean sweep of the Irish Masters Open at the Royal St George Yacht Club at the weekend. In a fleet of 31, Matan counted three wins in a range of conditions from 30–knots on Saturday to 12 knots or less on Sunday. 

In a show of strength for the 2018 World Championship race track, Dublin Bay produced true championship conditions, if not a little too tough for local sailors at times.

Finishing second to Matan in the full rig division – to claim the Irish Masters Champion title – was Daragh Kelleher of Skerries Sailing Club who outwitted some favourites (previewed here) to take the overall win in the Lennon Racewear sponsored event.

Additional reporting via Laser Class:

After a season of mainly light winds so far, competitors gathered in gorgeous sunshine on Saturday morning, buoyed by a promising forecast that did not disappoint over the two days. While the sunshine gave way to grey skies on Sunday, a fresh Southerly provided wind and wave to give challenging conditions, ranging from 12-25 knots throughout.

In the Full rigs after Day One, a breakaway group of three sailors threatened to sew up the podium early, despite intense competition throughout a home fleet literally chomping at the bit for the Worlds in September. Manhattan-based Mike Matan, sailing under the burgee of the RYA, claimed the second and third bullets of the day. Whether starting at the pin or the Committee Boat, Matan often seemed quickest away early on port, which was favoured all day as the starboard layline offered up good gains versus those tucked in just below or approaching on port. Daragh Kelleher from Skerries Sailing Club had taken Race One after diving early to that favoured side of the first beat. Corkman Nick Walsh also sat pretty overnight with 4,2,2. Only Gareth Flannigan (Ballyholme Yacht Club, reigning champion) and Howth’s Dave Quinn managed individual races in the top three.

Day Two dawned with a similar forecast and the fleet moved to a different track. The Race Officer made good on his promise to use both of the general race areas that will be employed at the Worlds, where the turnout of 350+ will require two race courses.

More lessons were learnt on flatter, less confused water but again with thrilling offwind legs as the breeze touched 20 knots once more. Up front in the Standards, however, it was business as usual as the same three dominated. Matan took his third win in the final, fifth race to take the overall win and First Master (45-55). Taking the silver medal was Apprentice Master Kelleher, just ahead of Walsh. This made Daragh Kelleher First Irish Master, well-deserved after taking two race wins and using up his discard with a DNC when feeling unwell for Race 3. John Simms from Ballyholme Yacht Club showed he’s lost none of his heavy weather prowess and took the top Grand Master award, finishing a highly creditable 5th overall. Sweden’s David Bourghardt from Kullavik KK rounded off the top 10, just ahead of David Hillmyer from Sarasota in Florida, competing in his second Irish Nationals (he took a race win in 2016).

The Irish Laser Masters scene has finally woken up to the attraction of the Radial rig for older and/or lighter racers. It was great to see 15 entries here after also getting good Master turnouts of a dozen boats with the smaller sail, joining in with our youth sailors at early season regional events. The potential for further growth here looks promising.

Sean Craig of the host club tended to pop out in front and ended up with five bullets but on Sunday he was pushed and headed for long periods by Chris Boyd from Ballyhome Yacht Club, ex Finn Olympian who, like Craig, has recently transitioned to Radial rig. Also new in the division is Dublin-based Italian Marco Sorgassi, from RStGYC, who came 3 rd overall behind Boyd after a consistent showing, holding off the likes of Troy Hopkins (Howth Yacht Club), Ian Magowan (Tralee Bay Sailing Club) and Dragon Champion sailor Neil Hegarty of RStGYC/Baltimore SC. Shirley Gilmore (RStGYC/Kinsale YC) defied her light stature in the strong winds and placed a very respectable 7 th overall, claiming the Top Lady award amongst four female sailors in total.

Sailors enjoyed an excellent three course Regatta dinner on Saturday, after which Irish Sailing High Performance coach Rory Fitzpatrick spoke for almost 90 minutes. A Laser Olympian himself (Athens, 2004) he focused mainly on his role as Coach to our “Radial Queen” Annalise Murphy, chronicling all the highs and lows. We heard about the lows and the soul-searching debrief after the London Olympics and that heartbreaking 4th place finish.

Then on to the next Quadrennial and a fascinating insight into the meticulous preparations that brought Annalise her silver medal in Rio, a period which also included a glorious win at the European Championships in Dun Laoghaire in 2013.

This Masters regatta was run faultlessly on the water by Race Officer Harry Gallagher, supported by his usual Flagship team and a hardworking team of Dun Laoghaire mark layers and RIB drivers. Start lines were square, courses were fair and race turnaround time was instant. Onshore, a compact but very able team kept the show on the road and we would like to thank the Royal St George Yacht Club for looking after the class so well. It augurs well for the Worlds when the neighbouring National Yacht Club comes onboard as co-host.

Thanks also to Open Full rig Champion Mike Matan for his kind words at the Prizegiving. He got his gold medal and Lennon voucher, but that Irish Masters trophy stays in the country with top Irish finisher.
