Sailing success at World Cup

May 30, 2011

Irish sailors had a successful week at the Delta Lloys ISAF World Cup regatta in Holland.

In the Star Class, Peter O’leary and David Burrows finished 4th overall with a best finish of 2nd in the 7th race..

In the 49Er, Ryan Seaton and Matthe McGovern finished 5th overall including a 1st place in the last race of the series.

In the Laser Radial, Annalise Murphy rounded off her week as she started it, with a win, bringing to five her tally of first places taken at the masive Dutch regatta. In spite of her wins there was never any hope of a medal due to a double false start on Friday, a costly race infringement that clearly cost the 21-year old this round of ISAF’s World Cup series. She finished the regatta ninth overall having won the final three races in near gale force conditions.
