It's A Win For Scotland in the RYA eSailing Spring Club Championship
(Posted 5th June 2020)
It was a win for Scotland as Alasdair Ireland, representing the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club, sailed his way to the top of the leader board and the title of RYA eSailing Spring Club Championship champion.
Competing against the nine other eSailing regional and home countries champions, Alasdair, sailing under the sail name of Speedy_1 and who is currently ranked 3rd in the GBR national rankings, battled it out against his fellow racers on the virtual waters, in a series of five races with two discards.
With live commentary from Yachts & Yachting online's Mark Jardine and RYA Pathway coach, Johnny McGovern, who himself competed in the eSailing Lockdown Cup and was part of the winning 'Splashes' team, racing was extremely tight throughout the championship final.
As well as the claiming the Championship crown, Alasdair wins a Musto LPX Gore-Tex jacket, courtesy of Musto, official suppliers of the British Sailing Team and a visit or online Q&A session with a member of the British Sailing Team for him and his fellow Royal Nothern & Clyde Yacht Club members.
