Marconi Cup News by Dee Griffiths.
What an incredible day’s racing last Saturday in extreme conditions!. It was an amazing team effort by all and in the end it was down to the wire in both the team racing and the relay events. There was really nothing between Baltimore and Crookhaven but even though they were pipped at the post, our guys should be extremely proud of themselves for being the first youth teams in both events with Baltimore 1 coming second in the team racing and Baltimore 2 coming second in the relay. Huge congrats to the coaches and sailors. They all deserve a shoutout for their commitment, tenacity and sportsmanship – Coaches: Rosa Lyden and Jane Bolger.
Team racing: Joseph Griffiths, Emily MacCarthy, Conor Walsh, Katie O’Keeffe, Sally O’Flynn, Noah McCluskey.
Relay: Eoin Horgan, Siofra Murphy Rourke, Daniel Hegarty, Ali MacCarthy, Sarah MacFeely, Emily MacCarthy.
