Irish domination

At Mirror Worlds in Tasmania

Wednesday January 15th 2003, Author: James Boyd, Location: United Kingdom
The Irish Mirrors dominated the final day of the International Mirror World Championship, as they have done for the entire event.

The Mirrors enjoyed a pleasant sail on the Derwent for their final day today. A sea breeze came in during the afternoon, strengthening up to 15 knots, but dropping back to ten knots later on.

Irish Mirrors took the top three positions in Heat 9. Andrew Woodward and James Bendon in Poseidon placed first. Christopher Clayton and Craig Martin in Gee-Czar took out second place ahead of Bobby Collins and Fintan Hughes’s Tantilizer.

Glenn and Lloyd Collings in No Chance (VIC) were the best-placed Australians in Heat 9 in fourth spot.

The Irish were also strong in Heat 10. Poseidon placed first again, and Gee-Czar and Tantilizer placed third and fourth respectively. On provisional results, No Chance placed second, however at the time of printing, No Chance was under protest by Britain’s Av-It.

The Irish Mirrors fought for the championship title until the very last race. The International Mirror World Champion for 2003 is Gee-Czar, helmed by Christopher Clayton and crewed by Craig Martin. The nearest rival Poseidon (Andrew Woodward and James Bendon) were just one point behind.

Congratulations to Christopher and Craig and to all the Irish team for a strong performance in the World Championships.

Victoria’s No Chance, helmed by father and son team Glenn and Lloyd Collings, is provisionally third (see above).

Stealth (David Moore and Matthew Wilson) was the highest placedTasmanian boat in the World Championship.

It was great to see that although Tasmanian Mark Barrington was unable to sail due to his Achilles Tendon injury, his son Lawrence is also a skilled sailor, helming Kamikaze II (crewed with Jessie Atherton) to seventh place in Heat 9 and a fifth in Heat 10.

Kamikaze II placed thirteenth overall.
