IRISH SCHOOLS SAILING ASSOCIATION TEAM RACING NATIONALS 18&19 April 2015

Well done to all teams who took part in the Team Racing Nationals at the weekend.
After a delayed start due to high winds, Sunday was a perfect day, wind easterly 10 –15 knots and not a cloud in the sky.  Two round robins were sailed, consisting of 44 races, with all teams racing each other twice.
On equal points, the top two teams at the end were Schull Sharks and PBC 1 and it was decided to run a final best of three to decide the National Champions.   PBC 1 won 2-1 in the final.
It is hoped that as  the new Irish Schools Team Racing Champions they will represent Irish Schools at the British Schools Finals in July.
