HYC Laser Sailors compete in RAYC Liffey Race

10 October 2014

Three Howth sailors competed in the Royal Alfred Yacht Club Laser event on the River Liffey on Saturday 11th October. Paul McMahon, Troy and Daniel Hopkins competed in perfect conditions - between 5-8 knots and warm sunshine.

7 races were completed with the start line being at the East link bridge and the windward mark at the Samuel Beckett bridge. Conor O'Beirne (RSGYC) won the event followed closely by our own Paul McMahon with Sean Craig, Luke Murphy and Theo Lyttle all from the Royal St. George following closely behind.
