Fresher conditions are on the way for the biggest regatta of the year in Ireland, which has attracted some of world sailing’s biggest stars from 42 nations.
Five times Olympic medallist Robert Sheidt (40) from Brazil will make his Dun Laoghaire debut, returning to Ireland for the first time since the Laser Worlds in Cork Harbour in 2001. Sheidt has returned to the Laser where the average age of the competitor is 25.
Irish Olympian Annalise Murphy’s arch rivals will be here too, the two radial aces who pipped the National Yacht Club woman for silver and Bronze in Weymouth; Holland’s Marit Boumeester and Evi Van Acker of Belgium, Dun Laoghaire marking the Belgian’s first return to competition since London 2012.
This event is co-hosted by the National Yacht Club & the Royal St George Yacht Club and will take place on Dublin Bay from Friday 30 August to Friday 6 September 2013.
The Event combines:
- European Laser Standard Men’s Championship 2013
- European Laser Radial Women’s Championship 2013
- European & World Laser Radial Men’s Championship 2013
