Irish Topper Travellers at Killyleagh Yacht Club

by Theresa Murray 29 Apr 2007 10:27 BST 28 April 2007

There was a good entry of 34 sailors from all parts of Ireland for the first Topper Traveller in a series of five hosted by Killyleagh YC Co Down.

There were three races held in shifting winds nearing force 4 at times. All sailors enjoyed the challenge of fellow competitiors resulting in closely fought races. For a number of sailors new to Topper sailing this was their first competition of the season but this did not deter them from putting in excellent performances.

Overall Results:

1 Rory Lynch (BLSC)
2 Evan Tobin (C/town SC)
3 Matthew Kinkaid (SLYC)
4 Conor Greagsbey (C/town SC)
5 Maria Dolan (BLSC)
