O’Driscoll adds J24 Easterns title at Malahide to season’s haul

Flor O’Driscoll, who recently retained his J24 National title and won Class
3 in the Dublin Bay Challenge, added to his season’s haul of trophies by
winning the Malahide Marina-sponsored J24 Eastern Championships hosted
by Malahide Yacht Club last weekend.

Something of a dress rehearsal for Irish entries in the BMW J24 Europeans at Howth from September 12th-15th, the second day of the event was hampered by bad weather which prevented racing. Four good races on
the Saturday however, with courses set by PRO Neil Murphy, produced
competitive racing with four different race winners.

‘Hard on Port’ (Flor O’Driscoll, HYC) had a 3, 4, 1, 3 scoreline, giving him a one point advantage over second-placed ‘Crazy Horse’ (Mossy Shanahan, HYC) who edged out ‘Jibberish’ (O’Kelly/Wormald/Walsh, HYC) on count-back.
