Intense heat and strong ocean currents face the 120-strong fleet at the ILCA7 (Laser Standard) World Championships starting tomorrow Monday (Narayit, Mexico 23rd May 2022) where Finn Lynch (National YC) will be defending his silver medal from the 2021 event last November
The Carlow sailor has had seven days of training at the venue and is looking forward to the breezy conditions that have proved very consistent over the past week.
Six competition days of five hours afloat each comprise the championship that has been likened to back-to-back half-marathons in physical intensity.
Meanwhile, Ewan McMahon (Howth YC) has been unwell for the past two days and is under the care of the Irish squad physio but has already missed two days of training. His goal for the regatta is a top 20 place which depends on a return to full fitness.
Monday and Tuesday will form the qualifying round of the regatta with two races daily scheduled that will decide the Gold fleet finalists before the final result is decided on Saturday (28th May 2022)
