J24 Yacht Wins Howth's Lambay Race (Results Here!)

9th June 2013
J24 Yacht Wins Howth's Lambay Race (Results Here!)

#lambayrace – Rarely have Lambay race competitors at Howth Yacht Club crossed the start and finish lines wearing shorts! The 2013 Lambay Races were bathed from start to finish in glorious sunshine and a light north-easterly breeze. Over 120 boats competed and boat of the day was "Hard on Port", a J24 which showed a clean pair of heels to some other Class 3 yachts winning by 3:20 minutes.

In his report on the event, HYC's Emmet Dalton says winning skipper Flor O'Driscoll put his success down to skirting closely along the southern shore off Lambay and getting into some slack tidal patches.

Regular Howth Yacht Club competitors were joined by sailors from other clubs, swelling the numbers to over 120 boats. 

The Howth Seventeens, the class that kicked off the Lambay Races over a century ago, were lead home by Ian Malcolm's "Aura". Suitably, that class was awarded its prizes first.

A "GoPro" camera, ideal for recording the good and bad parts of any sailing venture, was raffled and won by Squib sailor, Serena Blacoe. The full proceeds of the raffle, over €400 go to Howth Lifeboat
