Boylan Aiming to Retain Mermaid Crown at Rush

15th August 2014
Boylan Aiming to Retain Mermaid Crown at Rush

#mermaid – After falling victim to squally conditions at Rogerstown and with only part of the scheduled sailed to date the pressure is on to complete the Mermaid championship at Rush Sailing Club today.

The championships finally got off to a start on Tuesday with Race one and two being held in what eventually became almost light conditions. Earlier squalls had at times looked ominous but No. 26 Thumbelina and No. 188 Innocence mastered the conditions and each picked up a first. Defending champion Mark Boylan in 177 kept his name in the reckoning with a 3 and a 4. Results to date are downloadable below.

Further racing was scheduled yesterday (no results posted) with the championships concluding today.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
