Trinity & UCD Contest Student Yachting World Cup

13th October 2015

Two Dublin University Sailing teams are competing in this week's 35th edition of the Student Yachting World Cup (SYWoC) that began in France today. Both Dublin University (Trinity) and UCD Sailing Clubs return to France for the highlight of the Student sailing calendar. UCD return for the fourth time in a row and as previous winners from 2012. Trinity earned the invite to La Baule – Le Pouliguen in recognition of  its 'consistent performance at Student Yachting Nationals' as well as being 2006 Cup holders.

This year’s event will be sailed using J80’s and involves a coastal leg along with the scheduled inshore races. 

Up to 20 teams are taking part including the University of Southampton (England), the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), and the University of Brescia (Italy).

The event has been taking place since 1979 and is seen as the most prestigious keelboat competition in the student sailing calendar.

The UCD team for this year consists of Ryan Glynn (Skipper), Ronan Jones, Colin O’Mahoney, Cliodhna Conolly, Cian Cahill and Emma Reidy.
