ISA Youth Worlds Team Depart for Turkey
ISA Youth Worlds team is completing final preparations for the 2010 ISAF Youth World Sailing Championships, which takes place in Istanbul, Turkey from 8th – 17th July 2010. More than 300 young sailors from 60 nations will compete across eight disciplines, of which Ireland will compete in four. The laser sailors travel out over the weekend and will be joined by the 420’s early next week.
The Irish Team:
Matthew O’Dowd (Royal St George YC) - Laser Radial Boy’s One Person Dinghy
Sophie Murphy (Quoile YC) - Laser Radial Girl’s One Person Dinghy
Cian O’Regan (Kinsale YC) and Scott Flanigan (Howth YC)- 420 Boy’s Two Person Dinghy
Jane Butler and Jenny Andreasson (Royal St George YC) - 420 Girl’s Two Person Dinghy
Ross Killian -Team Leader
Arthur Brett -Team Coach
James O’Callaghan ISA Performance Director commented:
“We are extremely excited about this year’s team. Mathew O’Dowd, Jane Butler and Jenny Andreasson have experience of the event last year which counts for a lot. Jane and Jenny recently finished 3rd Youth girls in Kiel regatta so go into the event with lots of confidence. While Sophie, Cian and Scott are all new to this event they have plenty of international experience which will stand to them.
The ISAF Youth World’s is the pinnacle of a Youth sailor’s career thus far and it is great to see such a committed and talented team representing Ireland.”
O’Callaghan continued:
“Ross Killian leads the team and his Olympic experience will no doubt prove invaluable. Arthur Brett from Australia also joins the coaching team and ensures the Laser and Laser Radial will be getting some of the best advice going.”
In 2012 the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will take place in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, Ireland.
