Top international J/24 award for Eagleson

24th October 2011
Top international J/24 award for Eagleson

Robin Eagleson, the Chairman of the Irish J/24 Class Association (and Vice-Chairman of the International Class Association - IJCA), has been awarded the J/24 Class’s top accolade - the Geoff Evelyn Memorial Trophy – for outstanding service. The trophy is awarded annually to the member who, in the opinion of the IJCA Chairman, has made the greatest contribution to the J/24 Class in the past year.

 

Jim Farmer, Chairman of the IJCA, presented the trophy to Robin Eagleson at the J/24 World Council Meeting, held recently at Rochester Yacht Club in New York, site of next year’s J/24 World Championship.

 

According to Farmer, “Robin has over the past year gone above and beyond the call of duty to address issues which were critical to the continued stability and success of the International J/24 Class Association.  His persistence, diligence and superb communication skills enabled him to attack these issues straight on and offer a solution that no one else had the ability to do”.

 

The next meeting of the J/24 World Council is scheduled to be held on October 13, 2012 at Howth Yacht Club, the host club for the 2013 J/24 World Championship.

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.
