Talented all-round sailor Darragh McCormack of Foynes (he’s a noted J/24 sailor) still has the classic 1932 vintage 17ft Mermaids as his first love, and in a thrilling National Championship at Foynes from August 1st to 5th with a fleet drawn from all the Irish centres, he won (crewed by his brother Mark and Johnny Dillon) in a nail-biting finish to give Foynes its first Mermaid National Title.
