Malahide Girls at 420 Worlds in Austria

25th July 2012
Malahide Girls at 420 Worlds in Austria

Two Malahide Yacht Club girls – Lizzy McDowell and Orlagh Thompson – will be Ireland's representatives at the 420 World Championships starting in Austria next week (first race Monday 30th July).

The 12-race championship, which will have qualifying and final series in both the Ladies and Open fleets, will be sailed at Neusiedl am See, just south of Vienna and the Malahide crew will be competing against 180 boats from 27 other countries. The Championship finishes on August 5th.

The qualifying events were the 420 Connachts and the ISA Youth Nationals and Lizzy and Orlagh were the leading female crew in all Irish events this year. Lizzy recently won the Topaz Nationals at her home club, crewed by her cousin Gemma.

Ireland will be represented at two other international 420 events in August, the Junior Europeans at Lake Garda and the British Nationals at Torbay.

We've got a favour to ask

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.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
