#finnlynch – Olympic trialist Finn Lynch, has finished fourth at the Laser Standard U21 World Championships in Medemblik, The Netherlands. It's another top result for the Dubliner who last year won the U19 Laser Standard world champion title in France. The rising star of Irish sailing from the National Yacht Club is preparing for an Olympic trial for 2016.
Baltimore Sailing Club's Fionn Lyden finished in 12th place. Both Sailors made the Gold Fleet for the final day.
Sailing was challenging all week at the inland venue, where light breezes and cancelled races towards the end of the week provided to backdrop to what was a tight Championship, with the leaderboard changing on a regular basis. Lynch eased his way into the championship, placing in the 20's in the early rounds, before finding his rhythm to climb the leader board; coming into the final day in 4th place.
Darragh O'Sullvan of Kinsale finished 36th overall. Spain's Joel Rodriguez claimed the 2015 title.
