Chris Bateman (18) of Monkstown Bay Sailing Club and Royal Cork YC has won this year's Junior Irish Sailing All Ireland Championships in Schull today (Sunday 29 September 2019) with crew, younger brother Olin.

Olin Bateman (age 9) was the youngest competitor at the Junior All Ireland Championships this weekend.

The Bateman Brothers had a decisive victory, winning four out of the nine races, and finishing with 22 points. Behind them was Clare Gorman (National YC) with 34 points who just pipped fellow club member Rian Geraghty-McDonnell who finished in third place with 35 points.

Hosted by the Fastnet Outdoor Marine & Outdoor Education Centre in Schull, Cork, fifteen nominees from a wide variety of Irish Sailing affiliated classes from across the country competed in the event. Each nominee picked a crew member, and the competitors all used the Centre's fleet of TR 3.6s over two days (Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September).

Racing took place inside Schull Harbour with variable conditions over the weekend - very wet with light winds building to heavier weather on Saturday, followed by champagne sailing on Sunday with beautiful sunshine and gusts of between 12 to 15 knots from the north.

Overall Results:

1st Chris Bateman and Olin Bateman 2nd Clare and Conor Gorman 3rd Rian Geraghty-McDonnell and Nathan Van Steenberge
