In the ILCA6/Laser Women's European Championship in France, Eve McMahon of Howth YC produced a good overall result in one of her first events as a senior after moving up from three Gold medals at World Youth level this season.

A light breeze allowed all three ILCA 6 fleets to complete the first race, but after the wind dropped and never returned the fleet was sent ashore by the Race Committee, concluding their competition.

McMahon delivered her goal of a strong finish when she placed 13th, lifting her to 21st place overall in a fleet of 95 to end her season as Ireland's sole campaigner for Paris 2024.
