Forum: Byrni doesn’t believe the slogan ‘sport for all, sport for life’ applied in the case of the Junior helm who didn’t get entry to the Seniors, while marhay says we need to recognise the younger sailors who do so well. Gordon Davies suggests Mrs (Sally) O’Leary as Sailor of the Month – for managing a houseload of champions! Matty O’Dowd is mentioned several times in this forum, having won the Munster Championships, ISA Trials, Europa Cup, Radial Nationals and ISA Junior All Ireland. The physical stress and strain of sailing on young sailors has thrown up several points and opinions – see what Claire has to say on that issue.
