A very long day at the beach, Dumps to be specific, has given us double elimination winners across each of the fleets. In up and down winds, which veered more on the lighter side, and waves anywhere between was it and head high all sailors hit the water. Impressive performances were put in across all the fleets, with stand out sailors coming through the double eliminations in style to mix things up.
A full run down of the days action can be followed through our live ticker in the comments section of this post below, plus all shots from today can now be seen in the BWA Ireland Galleries feature here. Thank you again to Si Crowther for the fantastic camera work.

Location for the day is Dumps, we have starboard tack conditions with relatively light winds and waist to head high waves.
It’s an early start today with a briefing at 8.30am and first possible start at 9am. Many sailors are already down the beach preparing for a full day on the water, with strong winds (approx 20 knots) and enough swell predicted it could be a busy day on the water for all fleets.
Boards will be following all the action very closely, with live ticker and images coming live from the beach through the day.
