Just like their junior Laser counterparts at the 4.7 Worlds in Belgium this week, Irish girls are off to a flying start at the Laser Radial Under–21 Women European Championships in Douarnenez, France. Ireland holds the top three places after the first two races in the 17–boat affair.
Howth Yacht Club's Olympic trialist Aoife Hopkins is a single point off the lead on four points. She leads Royal North's Sally Bell who Afloat.ie readers will recall posted a top ten result last week at the Radial Youth Euros in Poland. Bell is on ten points in third place with Lough Derg's Aisling Keller fourth on 12–points.
In the boys Laser division at Douarnenez, Liam Glynn from Ballyholme Yacht Club is 39th from 70.
