At the recent RYA-Northern Ireland Regional Youth Championship held in testing conditions at Strangford Lough Yacht Club, the team from East Antrim Boat Club emerged triumphantly.
Not only did their 13-strong-squad take the prestigious 'Top Club' trophy back to their Larne Lough base, but 420 helm Lucy Kane scored a perfect line of bullets to secure the class's Ulster title, and underpin her club's position.
Other notable EABC results included a 420 runner-up position for [crew]Abby Williamson while Zoe Whitford took 3rd overall in the Topper 5.3 with George Doig also 3rd overall in the Topper 4.2's. In total, the event attracted 155 competitors from all parts of Ireland.
A delighted EABC Commodore Steven Kirby said. "Fantastic effort by our Junior and Youth sailors - a great promise for the future."
