Mayo Mayhem Ireland’s no.1 windsurfing wave competition was held on Achill Island, Ireland at the end of September. The result of which also decided the Irish windsurfing wave tile.
This year’s event went off. It was held in glorious condition for a windsurfing wave competition with Keel Beach looking more like Hawaii as it was sunny all weekend with side shore winds of about 20knots and good size waves of up to 3mtr.
The fifth time this event was run the competition has had two starboard and two port tack comps. It was back to starboard tack for 2022.
In total there were 36 competitors across the Pro and Amateur fleets. Two days of competition were run with points awarded each day and then combined to get an overall result.
Pro fleet winner was Alex Duggan with Julius Byrne in second and Nail
Mellon in third. In the Ams Ross Gsamelov took the win from Bob Hagan
in second with Ant Byrne in third. Special praise to Amy O’Donnell who was
the only female competitor to take on these fun but challenging conditions.
