Congratulations to WHSC sailors who have been flying the flag in national and international events.
Eoin Byrne and Max Passberger travelled to Donaghadee last week to compete in Topper Northerns. Max was 7th overall and 3rd in the youth section. Conditions were sometimes trying — Saturday was a day of light winds and fog didn’t allow them out on Sunday. Congratulations Max and Eoin.

In yacht racing news, Peter Coad raced his Blackjack two-handed in the Fastnet 500 out of Plymouth. Peter and Darren were unlucky enough to experience a dismasting as they approached Fastnet, but coped ably tidying up the mess, recovering the broken parts, and making their way to the nearest anchorage. Unlucky guys, but a valiant effort. You can read the full report on Afloat.ie.
Congratulations to advanced instructor Daniel Thompson of Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club who won the Leinster Fireball championship in Skerries recently.
