Sail-World.com : Munster Mermaid Championship at Foynes YC
Munster Mermaid Championship at Foynes YC


'Commodore Tom Murray presenting the Munster Mermaid Cup to Anthoy Carthy, skipper of Innocence with crew Eoin & Alan Butterly'    Irish Sailing Association

The Munster Mermaid Championship was hosted by Foynes Yacht Club this past weekend and a spectacular two days’ racing took place writes Gerry Ryan. The officer of the day, Alan McEneff had a considerable job in setting the course on Saturday east of Foynes Island, because of the weather conditions that prevailed, with a north-westerly wind and gusting force 4 to 5 with wind shifts, of course this made the task harder.

After a postponement of a brief period the race went ahead. Stiff competition was the order of the day with four boats from Skerries and Rush Sailing Clubs. Anthony Carthy, RSC., on Innocence kept up the pace right through the race with Cara II shading it on a few occasions, but in the end Carthy got to the finish line first.

In the second race it was much the same picture with Innocence winning again, FYC boat Three Chevrons coming in second, and Frankie Browne Cara II coming in third.

On Sunday, the weather conditions were a little calmer with a force 2-3 breeze, which the competitors did not need to worry about breakages to any of the boats fittings.

In the only race of the day Vincent McCormack won on Three Chevrons with Luke and Roisin McCormack; second was Anthony Carthy on Innocence and third was Enda Weldon on Mayhem.

The overall winner of the Munster Mermaid trophy after three races was Anthony Carthy on Innocence, his crew were Eoin and Alan Butterly. Three Chevrons came second and Cara II third. Claire Lowes, from FYC on Zest finished fourth, which was an excellent result for the Foynes boats.

The skippers and the crews were happy with the courses set and the hospitality which the club afforded them at Cooleen Point, hopefully, they will return next year for good and fair sailing.

At the presentation of prizes on Sunday, Commodore Tom Murray thanked the Officer of the Day, Alan McEneff in his magnificent handling of the championships, and also thanked James McCormack as his assistant, and the rest of the members of the club who assisted in any way with the championship's.

Congratulations to Dexterity on winning the May series in Class 1 and Marengo on winning the White Sails division.
