Craigs Win First RS200 Race of DMYC Frostbites Second Series

12th January 2016

The second series of the DMYC Frostbites started with a bright and gusty afternoon in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. A competitive fleet of six RS’s hit the water for two closely fought races in tricky conditions.
In race one, Sean and Heather Craig played the shifts skilfully and held off Ger Owens and Phil Lawton in their RS200 to take the win.
Making his debut in the RS400 was Kenneth Rumball of the Irish National Sailing School. An uncharacteristic windward capsize in the first race blew any remaining New Year’s cobwebs away. After his dunking, Kenny got to grips with the boat scoring an impressive 2nd in race two behind Emmet and James Ryan.
Good news for anyone eager to join in on the action. The DMYC are offering a 40% discount for entries to the 2016 series.

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.
