Feva Eastern Championships April 2016


Tim Norwood & Finn Cleary came second in the RS Eastern Feva championships, sailing a club Feva “The Des Rogan” and hosted by the RSGYC last weekend. It was the first RS event that Tim & Finn  had sailed in and they were one of the  youngest and lightest competitors.  They led the event on the first day coming 1st in the first three races and 2nd in the fourth race, on the second day the wind increased with gusts of up to 20 knots of breeze making it difficult for the light crew.

After a spectacular capsize in the second last race,  Tim and Finn managed to right the boat in record time and continue sailing only losing two places, they ended up 2nd overall. A fantastic achievement for their first event.
Also representing the Club at the event and sailing well finishing 7th overall  Siofra Mooney and Caoimhe Keane and sailing for one day of the event Max Goodbody & Daisy Dillon Malone.”
