Royal Irish Yacht Club sailors Ger Dempsey and Chris Nolan, together with the National Yacht Club's Justin Burke and Flore Dion from Dun Laoghaire will team up to fly the Dublin Bay flag and compete at the SB20 French National Championships in just over a week's time on the Cote D'Azur.

It's a test event before the World Championships next year that will be happening at the same time at the renowned Olympic classes venue at Hyères. 

French sailing stars will be joining the event, including two French Youth Teams.

One of the top French sailors, Robin Follin, the 2015 SB20 World Champion and a runner-up in 2018, will be sailing with the same crew: Emeric Michel and Gauthier Germain.
