Sea Scout Sailing Regatta 2016
Sails washed and flags stored which concludes the end of another successful sailing regatta held on the inner Malahide Estuary.
The day started with little to no wind but thankfully as the course was set the wind filled in and built up to a steady F3 which made for some great racing conditions.
Well done to all teams who displayed some excellent teamwork and skill on the water in what was a full day of racing.
