Optimists in Baltimore

24 February 2015

Some of our HYC Juniors who took part in the increasingly popular week long event run by IODAI in Baltimore during the mid term break where 150 kids from yacht clubs countrywide came together to sail. Five days of sailing were enjoyed on the water with evening fun and entertainment for the children.

The Regatta on the last day brought in some good positions for the Howth team with Jamie McMahon coming 3rd in the Gold Fleet and Eve McMahon 3rd in the Junior fleet and Alice Lacy brought home the 1st place in the Regatta fleet with 3 bullets and and a 3rd. Well done to all.

The event was covered by RTE Seascapes and our sailors (and organiser Jill Sommerville) featured throughout the broadcast - listen here
