Murphy second at World Cup Regatta
28 Jan 2015 15:03
Annalise Murphy is currently second overall after the opening two days’ sailing at the World Cup Regatta in Miami.
The Irish Olympian showed great form on the opening day to post two second-place finishes in the Laser Radial class, followed up by two top-five finishes on day two of the Florida event.
Dun Laoghaire sailor Murphy, who finished fourth at the London Olympics in 2012, coped tremendously in the tricky conditions at the Miami venue on Tuesday to secure a fifth-place finish in the opening race, followed by an impressive third-place in the second race of the day.
The results see Murphy progress to the Gold Fleet for the remainder of the World Cup event as she sits just two points off leader Anne-Marie Rindom of Denmark.
Up-and coming-Irish prospect Finn Lynch is best of the Irish trio in the men’s Laser, sitting in 39th place, ahead of Olympian James Espey in 51st and 97th-place Darragh O'Sullivan.
Rio hopefuls Saskia Tidey and Andrea Brewster are 25th in the 49erFX class, while Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern lie 32nd in the 49er competition.
