Due to heavy winds, the annual Howth Yacht Club ‘Round the Island’ Laser Race was postponed last weekend until this Saturday, 16th March writes Dave Quinn.

Entry is still open, with the first gun scheduled for 10:55. We plan on having a Windward Leeward Race first, before the main event. Lunch and prizegiving is planned for 1:30, which should allow for viewing of the Ireland V Wales match afterwards on big screens in the bar.

David Quinn Started sailing Mirrors in Sutton on Dublin Bay aged 15, before moving on to Lasers. He campaigned the Laser for eight years, including European Championships and Grade One Regattas. He was Chairman of the Laser Class in 2001, coinciding with the Laser World Championships in Royal Cork. After a short time working as the Racing Manager for the Irish Sailing Association in 2004-2005, he bought an SB20 in 2006, and raced that on the Irish circuit with some success for a number of years. He also competed in UK IRC Nationals and Commodores Cup around that time with Tiamat. After a break from sailing when his first child was born in 2011, he recently started racing Lasers again in late 2017, inspired by the upcoming Laser Master Worlds which was held in September of this year.
