Belfast Lough former 49er sailor Matt McGovern will be at East Antrim Boat Club this Wednesday (20th) from 7:30 pm for a talk on performance sailing.

As well as relaying the ups and downs of his journeys to the London and Rio Olympic Games with fellow Belfast man Ryan Seaton and that final 2017 bid for Tokyo with Strangford's Robbie Gilmore before retirement, McGovern will be offering his tips on performance sailing and other insights in his new role as RYA NI Performance Manager.

No doubt the evening will also include an update on the current Irish Olympic sailing team efforts and how his former partner's new campaign is shaping up for Tokyo next year with new crew Seafra Guilfoyle from Royal Cork.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
