Irish Laser National Championships - Day 1 at Ballyholme

'2014 Irish Laser National Championships'    Irish Sailing Association

At the Irish Laser National Championships, the three fleets woke up on a beautiful sunny day at Ballyholme Yacht Club knowing that the wind was to fill in over the afternoon but no-one was sure by how much. There is a little tension among the 126 competitors for the first time in a few years but if anyone was ignoring the pressure, it was the incumbent Providence Team IRL sailors James Espey and Annalise Murphy who have won five Nationals between them.

This summer has new blood on the horizon - Finn Lynch the new U19 Laser Standard World Champion and Seafra Guilfyle who won the Radial Silver medal at the ISAF Youth Worlds earlier in the summer.

2014 Irish Laser National Championships -  Irish Sailing Association_.  

Race 1 started with a southerly breeze and relatively flat seas with 16 knots. In the Standard fleet James Espey got off to a slow start rounding the first mark seventh but a left shift on the second beat took him up to first from where he distanced himself from the chasing pack. ISA Development Squad members Fionn Lyden was second with Finn Lynch in third. In the Radials Ballyholme’s Liam Glynn led around the course till the second round until he sailed the wrong course and was passed by the top four. Annalise also got off to a poor first beat in 20th place but she managed to catch up and pass Cork’s Cian Byrne at the final mark.

The conditions worsened considerably for Race 2 gusting up to 25 knots at the finish. Annalise has always excelled in heavier airs and showed the rest of the Radial class the way home from the first mark. Finn Lynch led the Standards for 90% of his race but James Espey passed him up the final beat as the breeze grew.

The Youth 4.7 fleet managed the conditions commendably with Johnny Durcan from Royal Cork YC winning Race 2 and was second to Lough Derg’s Scott Levie in Race 1. Asked for a comment afterwards Johnny offered that it was 'very windy' and was a day to 'keep your eyes out of the boat'.

Race Officer Robin Gray decided to postpone the final race until tomorrow with the wind settling over 24 knots. Unfortunately the morning looks like similar conditions with the breeze expected to start to die in the afternoon.

Results are provisional as of 19:00 on August 28, 2014
