Helmsman’s Championships to be revived in 2018

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

After a gap of 15 years, the Junior and Senior Helmsman's Championships are being revived in Bray SC this year. An invited group of six sailors will contest each event, with the Junior event scheduled for 1300hrs on Saturday 13th October, and the Senior event starting at 1345hrs the following day.

Each event will follow the same format, with six sailors, six boats, and six races, and competitors will switch boats after each race to remove any boat advantage. The junior event will be sailed single-handed in Laser Picos, with the senior event being raced in crewed Flying Fifteens with white sails only (by kind permission of the owners).

We encourage all club members to come down to the club this weekend and support our competitors - the club bar will be open after racing on both days. 

The competitors in the junior event will be Katherine Boland, Frank Daly, Cillian Murphy, Cathal Phillips, Adam Walsh, and Ian Walsh while the senior event will be contested by Ray Comiskey, Peter Davison, Eamon Farrell, Seán Hayes, Peter Lundy, and Philip O'Reilly.
