Following the recent announcement that Craftinsure is now the official insurance partner and sponsor of the Irish Laser Association, Craftinsure director Rod Daniel was delighted to attend and present some prizes at the CH Marine Munster Laser Championships in Baltimore, Co. Cork, over the Easter weekend.

The provincial event, first on the Irish Laser calendar, attracted 114 sailors, with a Silver fleet being introduced for the first time. Ewan McMahon took overall honours, with Thomas Chaix 1st Master (5th), and Clare Gorman 1st lady (6th).

Thanks to all of the hard work at Baltimore Sailing Club along with the Laser Association and others involved, the event was a great success.

The next of the Irish Laser provincial series will be the Ulsters on 28th/29th April at Ballyholme Yacht Club.
