Black Flag on the Baltic Costs Seafra Guilfoyle Top Five Finish at Radial Youth Worlds

Black Flag on the Baltic Costs Seafra Guilfoyle Top Five Finish at Radial Youth Worlds

#laserradial – A black flag disqualification in the second race of the Laser Radial Youth World Championships in Poland ruined Seafra Guilfoyle's ambition of a second youth medal this summer last week.

Despite the unlucky error, the plucky Crosshaven under–18 sailor, who took silver at the ISAF Youth Worlds in Portugal a fortnight ago, has again scored a series of top ten results in a strong 159–boat fleet.

Guilfolye was part of a seven boat Irish team.

After the black flag result, the Royal Cork Yacht Club sailor was lying 16th in Dziwnow but by Saturday's finish, in a measure of his speed and determination, the former Irish Optimist champion, had moved up to seventh overall.

'A black flag cost me a top 5 finish at worlds but still happy with seventh place. Looking forward to a few days off now', he concluded on Saturday.  

A poor quality event website is here with a broken results link.
