Mullingar - GP14 Autumn Open and Youths

15-16 Sep

 

From Michael Collender (Fleet captain, Mullingar Sailing Club):

 

The next event of the season is scheduled for Mullingar Sailing Club. Come to Mullingar and to make this the biggest event of the season.  We are in a central location, the lake offers a really good sailing area - we can get on the water when nobody else can. Sailing area is 5 minutes from slipway - not an hour!  Dinner & the few drinks are in the centre of Mullingar, so no freezing outside the clubhouse. Convinced - great - we want you in Mullingar for this big fleet event - we guarantee at least 6 boats from the Club.

 
This is a combined event - the Autumn Open and the Youths Championship, so if you have any youths who could helm your boat for the Youths, please make sure to encourage them to enter.
 
I look forward to meeting you over the weekend. I just want to use this email to share a few details about location & accommodation for the weekend.

Accommodation:  The dinner on Saturday night takes place in the Annebrook House Hotel in the centre of Mullingar, so I suggest you arrange your accommodation in the town rather than at the club. The trend has crept in for those attending events not to eat at the club - I think that the conviviality of the Saturday is as important as the sailing, so I would urge you to head to the Annebrook for the grub & craic.
 
Location of Club: See the About Us page on our website http://msail.net for details. There is no bar or catering restaurant at the Club, but snacks will be available for the duration of the event. 

The NOR & entry form will be on our new website

If you have any queries, please contact me by return email to collenderfamily@gmail.com or phone 087-2529433.

Regards & best of luck in the event. We aim to do our best to make your visit to Mullingar an enjoyable experience.

** Congratulations to Mike Senior & Chris White from South Staffs SC on winning the GP14 World Championship **

 

Race 9 was sailed in light shifty airs.  Mike Senior was just 1 point ahead of Ross Kearney over night so it was all down to the last race.  Mike made a good clean start - Ross did not.  Ross couldn't get clear air to fight Mike for the championship.  Mike took the race with Neil Marsden taking 2nd. Ross finished 28th.  Good enough to keep Ross in runner up postion.  Neil's 2nd took him into 3rd overall.

 

Shane & Taxi took 4th overall. Ger & Mel take 9th with some of the most consistent results throughout the week.  Mel also takes leading lady crew overall.  Tom Gillard & Andy Thompson finished 10th.  All of these finishers were in the Platinum fleet.

 

Curly Morris & Laura McFarland take 19th overall and 3rd in the Gold fleet.  Next Irish boat was Alan Blay & David Johnston in 22nd.  Keith Louden  & Alan Thompson in 28th.

 

Katie Dywer & Michelle Rowley in 41st position take first lady helm and all female boat.

Worlds Mount St Michael Visit & Irish night

 

All competors were invited to a drinks reception at the beautiful St Michaels Mount.  Lord St Levan and his family still reside there but the Mount and the Castle have been gifted to The National Trust.  Lord St Levan is President of the Mounts Bay SC.

 

This was followed by the traditional Irish night and promoting the next Worlds in 2020 at Skerries.  It was very well attended.  The flyer for the night encouraged the wearing of green.  One of the male sailors could only find a green dress!! 

 

All I can say about the rest of the night - is that 'when the drink is in, the wit is out'.
