Today was the last day of competition at the Seiko 49er World Championships in Marseilles, France. In both the men’s 49er and women’s 49erFX the day started with a petit final which was made up of the sailors who were in 10th – 20th position in the Gold Fleet and the winner competed in the three final races with the top 10 afterwards. Providence Team IRL’s Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern finished in 16th in the petit final which left them in 14th position overall in the regatta.

Commenting on the team’s performance, James O’Callaghan, ISA Performance Director stated "A solid performance for Providence Team IRL at the world championships in Marseilles. Just outside their target of top 10, but nonetheless an encouraging start to their Rio 2016 cycle".

It was a good event for Team NZL who won the event with Burking & Tuke and their teammates Hansen & Porebski finished in 2nd place. Australia’s Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen, London 2012 Gold medalists finished in 5th place.

In the 53 boat women’s FX fleet, Ireland’s Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey who have only been sailing together for two months had a good regatta for their first event finishing 36th. The highlight of the event for the team was a race win in the silver fleet on the penultimate day. 

Meanwhile in China, European Champion Annalise Murphy is preparing for the Women's Laser Radial World Championships which start in Rizhao City on Tuesday 01 October and finishes on Monday 07 October.

Next week (beginning Tuesday 24th September) two of Ireland’s Olympic sailors; Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern, will be hoping to replicate the recent successes of their teammate Annalise Murphy as they compete in their biggest event of the year – the 2013 49er & 49erFX World Championships. The Providence Team IRL sailors will face a physically gruelling six day and potential 25 race regatta which will be held in Marseille, France. 

Included in the high quality, 96 boat fleet will be three-time World Champions and London 2012 Gold medallists Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen from Australia who have most recently been competing in the America's Cup. Kiwis Peter Burling and Blair Tuke, London 2012 Silver medallists and 2013 49er European Champions will also be in attendance.

This championship will conclude what has been a busy summer for Seaton and McGovern. The pair, who both hail from Northern Ireland, had their best performance of the year at the Sail for Gold regatta in Weymouth in June when they won Gold. The pair are targeting a solid top 10 finish at the World Championships.
 
ISA Performance Director James O’Callaghan Commented “With the Worlds being late in the season it has given everyone a chance to get back up to speed post Olympics. Without doubt this will be the toughest event of 2013 for Ryan and Matt“.
 
Also competing at the regatta but in the female 49erFX class will be Ireland’s newest Olympic campaigners Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey. The pair have only just begun sailing together and the Worlds will be somewhat of a baptism of fire.
