Mirror Europeans at Sligo Yacht Club - Overall

by Steve Wilkinson 20 Aug 2010 14:12 BST 15-20 August 2010

Following an assessment on the course by the committee boat, the final day's racing has been abandoned due to winds of 30+ knots over the course and broken seas. This means that Ross Kearney and Max O'Dell (IRL) have won the 2010 Mirror Europeans by a margin of 36 points.

The consistent sailing of the 2005 Mirror World Champion, with a result no worse than third all week, has meant a comfortable win for Ross. Second were local crew Beth and Shauna Armstrong (IRL) whose performance on the water yesterday left them in a strong position whatever the weather today.

Another crew whose performance yesterday elevated them from fifth to a final finishing position of third were Ed and Beth Grey (GBR), leaving them the top performing British boat.

The week has proved to have had fantastic sailing and close racing in Sligo Bay, with a variety of conditions for the 74 entries, with a warm welcome extended by the hosts Sligo Yacht Club and the Irish Mirror Class Association.
