Eoin Lyden and Brian Stokes are the new RS Feva Irish National Champions for 2012….
Three glorious days sailing were laid on by Howth Yacht Club with the full compliment of ten races provided by their as always efficient Race Management Team.
Eoin and Brian ended up 6th overall but were the highest placed Irish crew. They showed superb seamanship on the Saturday to maintain their high finishing positions despite not having their Gennaker for three of the four races sailed that day.
The visiting Team GB boats showed the Irish fleet the best way to sail these boats with a super display of downwind sailing in this asymmetric boat.
Team GB took the first 5 places!
Eoin and Brian are both very active members of Baltimore Sailing Club having done all their levels with BSC.
