#OLYMPIC – One of Ireland's seven International Race officers (IRO) has been short-listed for the Olympic regatta next July at Weymouth. The National Yacht Club's Jack Roy is one of only 25 rated for one of the most prestigious roles in a race official's career.

As reported in April last season Roy is now part of a panel of 25, from which 19 will be chosen but the process will not be confirmed until January.

Roy has already run this year's sailboard and Laser races at the Olympic test event as part of a 180–strong race management team.

Roy is based in Dun Laoghaire and is a former Flying fifteen champion sailor. A member of the National Yacht Club, he has acted as Race Officer for many World and European championships run on Dublin Bay in recent years including Flying Fifteen Worlds, Laser 4.7 Europeans, 2007 Etchell European Championships, Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta, Cork Week, and SB3 Worlds 2008.
