Optimist Triumph @ Ulsters

Our armada of intrepid sailors set out to represent MYC at the recent Optimist Ulster Championships at the Royal Northern Ireland Yacht Club.

With a tough day’s sailing on the Saturday and a cancelled race day on the Sunday, Sophie Kilmartin in very windy and big seas raised the club’s spirits with first place in the Silver Fleet based on results of the 3 races from the Saturday. A big congratulations to Sophie in a great achievement and once again congratulations to our now “heavy weather” sailors who have yet to compete in an open event in winds less than force 4!!!

James Anglim, Tara and Joanna Berry, Sophie Kilmartin, Niamh Lynch and Ciara Paul  (pictured below with others) bravely battled gusting winds of force 6+ over the weekend. Well done to all.
