With an entry of over 30 Standard and Radial rigs this year will be action packed with Laser Regional Championships each month, Laser Class starts in the Dun Laoghaire Club regattas and the pinnacle of the Laser sailing year for many with the Laser Master’s World Championships in September in Dun Laoghaire.
A travelling group of 14 DBSC Laser sailors moved North over the weekend to the Ulster Championships in Ballyholme and returned with impressive results. Well done to Shirley Gilmore - 1st Lady Master, Mary Chambers – 2nd Lady Master in her first regional event!, Sean Craig 2nd Master in the Radial Fleet. In Standard Fleet, well done to Ross O’Leary – 2nd Master & 4th Overall, Damien Maloney 6th Overall and Gavan Murphy in 10th Overall in tough and very competitive racing on Belfast Lough.
