IUSA Easterns

The first IUSA event of the season took place this weekend (14th-15th of October) in Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club.  UCD Sailing Club ran a very successful event with over 150 sailors. Due to the favourable conditions, a total of 85 races took place on Saturday. Racing continued on Sunday and progressed to quarters, semis and finals. Congratulations to Trinity Sailing (TCD1) for winning gold fleet, closely beating UCC1 in the final. UCC2 finished third in the gold fleet, having lost to the winners TCD1. UCC3 had some excellent wins on Saturday and were promoted from silver to gold but unfortunately were beaten in quarter finals. UCC5 missed out on a place in the bronze fleet final and were placed third. UCC4 still remain the people’s champions. Great competition and sportsmanship was displayed by all, affirming much promise for the year ahead. Thanks again to all UCC sailors and everyone involved in organising the event.
