Irish Sailor of the Year, Howth’s Eve McMahon has won the World U21 ILCA 6 championship title in Tangiers, Morocco, yesterday afternoon. After six days of racing, the Paris Olympics 2024 campaigner delivered an impressive result, coming in 14 points lower than her closest rival.
On a windy final day of the event and in stark contrast to Saturday’s drifting conditions, Eve started in the middle of the fleet and worked her way up into third place shortly before the finish and while a capsize threatened to ruin her hopes, she still managed to recover and finish the race in eighth, more than enough to secure the title.
McMahon, who sailed a consistent series and was never out of the top two overall, wrapped up the championships on 54 points after 11 races sailed. Switzerland’s Anja Von Allmen was second on 68, with bronze taken by Carlotta Rizzardi of Italy on 81. Well done Eve!!!
