Brewster/Tidey Officially Launch 49erfx Campaign for Rio in Palma

Brewster/Tidey Officially Launch 49erfx Campaign for Rio in Palma

#49erfx – New Irish Olympic sailing combination are aiming high with the stated ambition of 'bringing home a medal' in the 49erFX class in Rio in three year's time. Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey are full time sailors campaigning to represent Ireland at the Rio 2016 Olympics and are in Palma, Mallorca today on the first stage of that journey at the ISAF World Cup. 

Their partnership began in August 2013 just prior to the World Championships, where they put in a solid first event performance taking away some top 5 results but most importantly a wealth of experience to build on. Now with a winter of training behind them they are keen to get back out racing on the World Cup circuit in 2014 to hone their skills and continue to learn and improve before the first Olympic Qualification Regatta the ISAF Worlds in Santander.

According to this morning's team press release 'Team Brewster/Tidey are members of the Irish Sailing Association Olympic Development Squad and recognised as Ireland's most promising female pairing for the Olympic qualification in the 49erFX'.
