It was a promising performance for Ryan Seaton as he and crew Seafra Guilfoyle finished 17th at the 2018 49er European Championships in Poland.

The Carrick sailor won two races throughout the competition and then went on to notch up a few top three finishes.

The race was important for Seaton as he gears up for the biggest event of the year in August – the World Championships.

RYANI’s High Performance Manager Matt McGovern commented: “Ryan Seaton’s performance at the European Championships in Poland was a great show of his capabilities. With just a little more consistency he will be right up at the top of the World fleet. We look forward to watching Ryan as he takes on his competitors on a world stage in August.”
