Sun shines on Northern Ireland Youth Championships
The 2020 RYA Northern Ireland Youth Championship concluded the last weekend, hosted by Ballyholme Yacht Club.
COVID restrictions put in place for Dublin unfortunately meant some sailors were unable to attend and race in the 420 class but there were three pairings on the water to fight it out for what was also the class Northern Championships.
Ben Graf and crew Alexander Farrell from Lough Ree Yacht Club demonstrated great talent and slick crew work to win three of the five races and be crowned this year’s 420 Northern Champions.
Second place for Jack McDowell & Harry Thomson. Last place on podium for Garrett Leech & Conor Paul.
