Sole Irish Laser sailor Liam Glynn of Ballyholme Yacht Club in Northern Ireland raced four races in 20–25 knots at Kiel Week, Germany. By his own account, the former Topper World Champion said he had some 'good sailing' but also made some 'costly mistakes', including a yellow flag penalty in 25–knots.

'I had great starts' but, Glynn says, he needs to work on 'better concentration to suceed in some very tricky conditions'. 

Although he was close to gold fleet standard, early mistakes left him in silver.  'Onwards and upwards!', concludes the Tokyo campaigner.
