Congratulations to our Topper sailors
Our Topper fleet had a great weekend competing in the Southern Championships at Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis club. Eight WHSC sailors were among up to 70 who travelled for the event and enjoyed what was a brilliant experience at a really well run event. Congratulations to Max Passberger, Eoin Byrne, Isabelle Passberger, Fionn Lynch, Robert Jephson, Eimear Quinlan, Sarah Clooney, Matthew Plant, Max Sweetnam and Mena Sweetnam who “battled the tide on way to start and sailed four races and battled tide again coming home,” according to Fiona Passberger. There was a very early start on Sunday for the final two races. Max Passberger finished 10th, Eoin Byrne came 17th and Isabelle Passberger finished in 21st place. Congratulations to all who participated. Thanks to Andre for sharing the photographs.
Good luck to Slack Alice
Best of luck to Slack Alice flying the flag for WHSC in Kinsale’s Sovereigns Cup regatta sponsored by O’Leary Insurance Group which started today. Sixty two yachts are participating. Conditions on day and one were grey and misty with light winds. We’re rooting for you, Shane, Trudi and crew.
Adult Laser coaching
Adult Laser coaching got underway on Tuesday evening in nice winds under the excellent supervision of Ciaran Finnegan and recruit instructor Cormac Doolan. Many thanks to Fiachra Rowan for organising an invigorating first session that was hugely well received by novice and more experienced sailors alike.
