Irish sailor wins the 2016 Volvo Gill Optimist National and British Open Championship

Tom Higgins from the Royal St George Yacht Club won the Volvo Gill Optimist National and British Open Championship on the 5th of August. After Ewan McMahon's silver medal at the KBC Laser Radial World Championships, the Irish sailing promises to have a bright future.

We also had some wins worth mentioning in the junior fleet and the regatta race:

- Justin Lucas 3rd from the RCYC - Junior Fleet

- Russell Bolger 2nd - Jessica Jordan 3rd both from the RSGYC - Regatta race.
