Tracht beach in Kinvara, Co. Galway again played host to the final series on the Irish Slalom Tour 2011. 2011 has been a fantastic year for breeding new slalom racers as some new faces joined the fleets and forced the established competitors to sit up and take notice.
From Cork to Kerry up to Newtownards and Donegal; back to Dublin; there was nowhere better to finish than in the beautiful fishing village of Kinvara. With a forecast of 18-20 knots with gusts up to 25 knots on Saturday and Sunday similar, with slightly less gusts, the 32 registered sailors across the Gold and Silver Fleet took to the water for what was an incredibly close competition.
