Cullaun Sailing Club Spring Regatta

Luke and Paddy

 

Congratulations to Paddy Donlon and Luke O Sullivan who came second in the Cullaun Junior Sailing regatta last Sunday on Cullaun Lake.  There were a total of twenty boats out and there were 4 races on the day.  Paddy was on the helm for two races while Luke  crewed and then they swapped over for the last two races. Although they were sailing for the Junior Regatta their scores actually placed them ahead of some of the adults so well done to the two of them
