A strong contingency of HYC junior and senior members participated in the Sutton Dinghy Regatta on Sunday 9th August.

In the Optimist main fleet Richard Hogan captured runner-up spot while Conor Howard took a well-earned 6th place. A little further back, Claude Mollard finished 11th & Alex Kavanagh, 14th.

In only her second external event, Isobel Cahill finished 5th in the large Optimist regatta fleet.

In the Laser categories, Brendan O'Reilly won the radial class while son, Harry came home in 2nd place in the standard rig. Judith Malcom was 4th in radials.

The O'Byrne family were to the fore again when Sam taking runner-up spot in the Laser 4.7 class, being just edged out of 1st place on count back. Neil Murphy just failed to make the podium, finishing in 4th.

HYC involvement did not stop with our sailors. Harry Gallagher & his assistants aboard 'Tigger' provided excellent race management for the 92 boat fleet spread across five classes. The need to cater for so many different classes necessitated start lines to port & starboard of the committee boat, & inner & outer courses, the smooth organisation of which was no mean feat.

Also prominent on the water were Sinead Wheeler, Rob Slater, Miles Byrne & Chris Howard providing rescue. Their support and the SDC rescue ribs were increasingly in demand during the second race as the strengthening breeze saw several boats capsize and in need of assistance.

Thanks to our neighbours in Sutton and the co-operation of the weather. A very enjoyable day on and off the water.
