The Laser Leinster Championships incorporating the Junior National championships were held at the National Yacht Club on 29/30 July.

In testing conditions over both days with windspeeds reaching up to 33kts, Howth sailors featured prominently in all three classes.

In the Standard Rig Masters, Paul Derham took second place and Brian Jackson third in the Leinster Championships.

In the Radial Class, Alistair Kissane won the Junior National Championships.

Howth was well respresented in the 4.7 Class with Ross Darmody finishing 5th while in the Ladies 4.7 division, Claire Murphy was 4th and Katie Malcolm 6th.

Well done to all HYC sailors who took part. The main event of the year is the National Championships which will take place in Ballyholme over four days from 24th to 27th August. A large contingent from HYC are expected to compete.
