Fionn Lyden still in the hunt for Rio Qualification

UCC Sailor and Quercus student Fionn Lyden is in Mexico at present at the Vallarta Laser Standard Men’s Championship 2016.

After two races  Fionn is placed 73rd which leaves him second among the 3 Irish competitors in the race featuring 120 of the best international sailors in this class.

In total there are 14 races scheduled, 2 each day.

The weather pattern is expected to be calm in the morning, rising to 15 knots in the afternoon. Vallarta is 6 hours west of us, so the results go up on the website in the late evening Irish time.

Good luck to Fionn over the next few days.
