Great performances by WHSC sailors in the 1720 Easterns

Congratulations to WHSC sailors including helms cruiser captain Julian Hughes and Alex Coleman who took part in the 1720 Easterns at Howth Yacht Club at the weekend.

Julian’s Root 1 placed fifth overall, while Alex’s Red Eye came 12th in the BNRG-sponsored championships.

There were great performances too by an adopted Dunmore boat, Ben Scallan’s True North (4th overall), and a former Dunmore boat After Midnight with a Dunmore man onboard, John Murphy, which came 8th, across the two days of racing, characterised by easterly winds and gorgeous sunshine on Saturday.

Fifteen boats from ten clubs participated overall.
