Gonzaga wins All Ireland Inter-Schools Sailing Championship


Congratulations to Tom Higgins (S3A) and Loghlen Rickard (S5D) on their sailing success. Two Gonzaga teams competed this weekend in the Championship in Sutton Dinghy Club. Five sailors (Loghlen Rickard and Tom Higgins Team A and Patrick Coyle, Henry Start and Jeff McGovern Team B) represented the school in the mixed fleet event. This fleet is comprised of Lasers, Mirrors, 420s, Fevas and Toppers sailing a single course using the Portsmouth Yardstick handicapping system for scoring.
