SAILING REGATTA 2014
The Blackrock College sailing regatta 2014 was held in excellent conditions in Dun Laoghaire Harbour on Monday last, 29th September. 28 Boys participated with 7 teams of 4 competing in a round robin-style event.
There were 10 races in all. Each team got to race every other team culminating in a Semi-Final and Final with Team 5 of:
James O’Donnell (5th Year), Philip Maguire (3rd Year), David Fitzsimons (2nd Year) and Ewan McMahon (3rd Year), the Winners of the Team Racing L’Afrique Trophy.
The individual “Brouder” Trophy went to James O’Connor (Transition Year).
Over the weekend, James O’Connor, Conor Byrne (both Transition Year) and Patrick Riordan (3rd Year) finished 3rd in the first INTER-SCHOOLS REGATTA of the season.
I thank Mr Maupin, Mr Evan O’Brien and Daniel Carr (Class of 2012) for their planning, organisation and delivery of an excellent Regatta.
