Glynn who had been unable
to train during lockdown is glad to be back in action.
He says: “I feel so lucky
to be back on the racing circuit. We had offshore conditions most the week
which made for some very high points racing but I was very happy with my
tactical calls throughout the week.
“Growing up doing club
racing in shifty conditions at Ballyholme has definitely paid off. It was nice
to have some races at the top of the gold fleet and it brings me a lot of
confidence for next season, if I can iron out a few weaknesses and get used to
racing among the best sailors in the world.”
Looking ahead, Glynn is
taking a couple of weeks off to reset and is then entering into training for
the next season.
He comments: “I have a few
plans in place for the Winter with Irish team camps and training regattas in
Vilamoura, Malta and Palma. I hope to get away to events and training abroad
but I am also lucky to have our team high performance centre in Dublin to
continue training if travel becomes too difficult again.”
Andrew Baker, RYA Northern
Ireland’s Performance Manager, is pleased with Glynn’s latest performance.
He says: “Liam has
continued to show progression within a world class international field. His
result of 43rd is a personal best and his individual race results
includes three in the top 15.
“I am looking forward to
catching up with Liam when he has some time now at home and support him
continuing into next season.”
