BALTIMORE Sailing Club’s Fionn Lyden swept his way to glory at the All-Ireland Sailing Championship in Mullingar last weekend.

The talented West Cork man (21) won a bronze medal at the 2017 U23 Finn Worlds in Hungary in August and now he has added more silverware to his growing collection.

Racing at the All-Ireland Sailing Championship as a nominee of the Irish Team Racing Association, Lyden – crewed to this success by fellow West Cork man Liam Manning from Schull – defeated a formidable field that included defending champion Alex Barry of Monkstown Bay and the RS400 class and GP14 world champion Shane McCarthy of Greystones.

Lyden proved himself to be number one and he finished the series with 16 points, with Alex Barry on 18 and Shane McCarthy on 19.
