The final day of racing for the Sonar class at the Paralympic Games had to be cancelled due to the lack of wind, with Irish sailors, John Twomey, Anthony Hegarty and Ian Costello finishing 11th overall.

Twomey has made the history books by competing in what was his 10th Paralympics, a record for any Irish person competing at either the Olympics or Paralympics. 

Twomey commented “We’re disappointed we didn’t get to race today but it’s been a great regatta and a wonderful Paralympics“.
