Howth Yacht Club's Eve McMahon lies second overall – and first in the under 17 category – going into the final days racing of the ILCA Laser Radial Youth World Championships currently underway in Kingston, Canada.
The 2019 edition of the championships sees 208 competitors from 32 countries competing for World titles in both boys and girls divisions.
Six Irish sailors, four boys and two girls, have made the journey to the 1976 Olympic sailing venue.
McMahon went straight from this month's Youth World Sailing Championships in Poland for the Canadian event.
After 10 races with the final two on Wednesday, some of the Irish sailors are featuring strongly.
A great start for Irish sailors saw both Tom Higgins and Eve McMahon (HYC) top their respective leaderboards after day one.
Subsequent results have seen Higgins drop back to 8th, while McMahon has continued good form and now lies 2nd overall and 1st in the under 17 category.
Clare Gorman (NYC) is in 5th place in the Girls division, while Michéal O’Suilleabhain lies 12th and Eve’s brother Jamie McMahon is in 34th place in the Boys gold fleet.
