Ridgeway 2022 Championship of Ireland

Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club July 2 -3


A short update on a superb weekend at our Nationals in Royal North. A more extensive event report will be forthcoming later in the week. A big shout out to the members and organisers in RNIYC for what was undoubtedly one of the best events in quite a while. A super turnout of 43 boats arrived in Cultra, not really knowing what to expect as the Club were possibly hosting their first ever GP14 event but the Class need not have worried.
An exceptional welcome, superb organsiation and hospitality. Thank you Gerry Reid and all your volunteers. Add in some very difficult and tough sailing conditions on the Lough and we had the recipe for a memorable weekend. With the Worlds in Skerries less than 2 months away, the Class were hugely appreciative of Royal North and PRO Nigel Kearney for going to the extra effort of using gate starts for all 6 races. With over 105 boats due in Skerries, gate starts will be the order of the day and the fleet were delighted to get an opportunity to get some practice in. 
That being said, this was no practice regatta with a hugley competitive fleet that contained no less than 3 World Champions, multiple Olympians and a myriad of National title holders across a range of classes. 
After 6 races, congratulation to Shane MacCarthy & Andy Thompson on taking the title. While not a first for Shane, it was a first outright Championship of Ireland title for one of the fleets most decorated sailors, Andy Thompson.
