At last night's popular 'Speakers Supper' at the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire, the club's own Olympic Silver Medalist Annalise Murphy gave a first-hand account of her personal experience and reflections in the Volvo Ocean Race that she completed in June.

The NYC superstar is now back into Olympic sailing mode having launched her new 49erFX campaign in a busy summer for the 28–year–old Dubliner. She is currently training on Dublin Bay most days from her base at the NYC.

This week in the Budget increased funding was announced for Olympic athletes. Hopefully, it is another boost before Tokyo 2020 so Annalise can realise her ambition to go one better and win Gold for Ireland in two years time.
