The Irish 420  team has been announced for the 2018 Junior European Championships.

Easter's Volvo Irish Sailing Youth Pathway National Championships was the qualification event for the selection of an Irish 420 team to travel to the 2018 Junior European Championship in Sesimbra, Portugal this July.

The Pathway National Championships produced a wide range of testing conditions for the sailors with the top six crews qualifying to attend the Junior European Championships and a warm up regatta at the same venue.

The team will have representatives from six clubs across the country and comprises the following crews:

Nicola and Fiona Ferguson – National Yacht Club
Gemma Mc Dowell and Emma Gallagher – Malahide Yacht Club
Grace O’Beirne and Kathy Kelly – Royal St. George Yacht Club
Micheal O’Suilleabhain and Michael Carroll – Kinsale Yacht Club
Morgan Lyttle and Patrick Whyte – Royal St. George Yacht Club/Lough Ree Yacht Club
Daniel Thompson and Dan Quaid – Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club

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.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
