John Kenny, a.k.a. JK, is the shiny new Irish Speed Champion. In the recent National Speedsailing Championship in Dungarvan Waterford, JK won the Irish title GPS event.

With windy but very variable weather, JK made the best of the changing conditions with his perfectly tuned Severne and Starboard gear, and took the win against some serious competition from Martín Waldren and multi titleholder, Oisin Van Geldern.

JK also broke the Irish Speed record earlier in the year with 44 knots, and now his next goal is to be among the world’s best speed sailors in the upcoming World Production Speedsailing Championship to be held in Dungarvan, Ireland, next November. We wish him the best!
