Irish RS Inland Champs - Killaloe Sailing Club, Ireland
23/09/2023 - 24/09/2023


Irish RS Inland Champs - Killaloe Sailing Club, Ireland, 23/24 Sept

The Irish RS Inlands included RS Aeros, RS200s and RS400s and were held at Killaloe Sailing Club on Lough Derg, Co. Clare

With the tail end of hurricane Lee sweeping the Island we saw numerous sailing events cancelled this weekend across Ireland. The team at Killaloe Sailing Club decided to go ahead as planned with the hope of getting some racing for the 33 boats entered across the three classes.

Saturday saw the fleet launch in 20kts of southerly breeze with the first race getting under way in strong but manageable conditions. Race two saw the wind increasing to survival conditions for the second lap, with the maximum gust recorded sitting at 38kts.

Saturday evening commenced with news that racing would be moved forward an hour on Sunday to try and get 3 races in before the breeze built in the afternoon. The evening entertainment began with a BBQ, which saw a great attendance due to the majority of sailors camping on site. Later in the evening many enjoyed the rugby and stayed around until the early hours before retiring for an early start the next morning.

Sailors woke to a pleasant sunrise and winds of 12-15 kts which then dropped through the day.

Congratulations to Daragh Sheridan (Howth) on another win in Ireland but only just! Seconds in it from Roy Van Maanen (Greystones/Royal St George YC) in 2nd and Sarah Dwyer (Royal St George YC) in 3rd and 1st Female.

A great event, if a little wet this time! Thanks to all in Killaloe
