Eve McMahon of Howth won the ILCA 6 Youth World Championships in Arco on Lake Garda, Italy.
McMahon was consistent from the early stages of the week’s racing and won three out of the five qualifying races. A disqualification in the first race of the final series slipped her back a few points, but her lead was too great and she beat Anja Von Allmen of Switzerland to take Gold.
For the Irish Youth Sailor of the Year 2020 and 2019, the medal marks a three-in-a-row run for McMahon. This summer she has taken silver in the U-19 category of the EURILCA (European region of International Laser Class) U-21 Europeans in Montenegro, and silver in the EURILCA Laser Radial Youth Championships in Croatia.
