Mirror Westerns 2013 Day 2 Report 7th Apr 2013

Day 2 of the Westerns took place in blustery conditions which would have appeared to suit some of the more weathered sailors. With wind gusting up to 20 knots in a very cold north easterly wind.

Best of the silver were local sailors Jack Ryan and Ben Graf and the best of the bronze were Sutton sailors Shane Mcloughlin and Ben Jennings. Race 6 was won by Cian & Caolain with Ronan Armstrong and Eva Martin coming in a close second followed by other Sligo sailors Beth Armstrong and Samuel Wray. Going into the last race there was just one point between the top two sailors Cian and Caolan on 10 points and Tiarnan and Alex on 10 points and Beth Armstrong on 17 points.

Cian and Caolan held onto their winning form and won the race. 2nd place in the final race went to Shane McLoughlin and Ben Jennings SDC and 3rd place went to Ronan and Eva from Sligo YC. Overall racing proved very exciting over the 2 days a key factor would be the excellent racing provided with thanks to the PRO Vincent Rafter and his skilled team.

Congratulations to Shane McLoughlin and Ben Jennings who now move up to the Silver fleet and Jack Ryan and Ben Graf who move up to the Gold fleet.
