A team of seven Royal St George Yacht Club Laser sailors, as well as sailors from Schull in West Cork and Foynes  on the Shannon Estuary are competing in the Europa Cup this Easter. The International Laser Class Association run the Cup which consists of 10 separate regattas in different European countries with the three best scores to count.

The Swiss Cup leg opened at the weekend in Lugano, and the following weekend the French event is being held in Hyeres.

The RStGYC group includes Tara Coveney, Peter Fagan, Jack Fahy and Hugo Kennedy.

After Hyeres the group travels straight to Baltimore SC for the Laser Munsters over Easter weekend and then immediately afterwards onto Ballyholme Yacht Club for the ISA youth nationals.

The hope is there will be stronger wind on the lake this morning. So far three races in Radials and two in Laser 4.7 have been completed.
