RS Sailors Heading North to Cushendall

7th September 2011
RS Sailors Heading North to Cushendall

The 2011 RS400 and RS200 Traveller Series draws to a close this weekend with the National Championships taking place at Cushendall Co. Antrim.

Two strong fleets of over 40 boats in total are expected.

In the RS400's Simon Herriott of Greystones SC, who scored some very impressive top ten results in the 86 boat UK Nationals is going to have some notable competition with the recently crowned Irish Fireball National Champions and Cushendall locals Barry McCartin and Conor Kinsella rumoured to be entered.

 Greystones SC is bringing five 'under 18' boats and more boats for sailors in their late teens /early twenties to Cushendall this weekend. The Club's hard work getting kids into fast doublehanders is bearing fruit.  See more on this initiative here. Photo: Sarah Byrne

Also bolstering the fleet is multiple Laser regional champion Paul McMahon, who also has plenty of asymmetric experience from his time in the SB3 fleet. Along with the Irish contingent some of the hotly contested UK fleet may make the trip across.

In the RS200 fleet the season long battle between Greystones rivals Roy Van Maanen and Graeme Noonan is set to continue. But the Wicklow 200's may not have it all there own way, with Clive Coffey and Emily Smith sure to be contention.
