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.”
