Irish Sailing Announces Topper Squad For Summer 2019

Irish Sailing has announced its six-strong Topper dinghy squad for competition over the summer of 2019.

Royal Cork Yacht Club sailors Darragh Collins, Oisín Mac Sweeney and Anna Keal will join Dun Laoghaire youths Jacques Murphy of the Royal St George and Adam Irvin of the National Yacht Club, while Becky Lowney of Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club completes the lineup.

The aim of the Irish Sailing Topper squad is to prepare a team for the 2019 Topper World Championships at the Medemblik Regatta Centre in the Netherlands this July. 

Their programme will comprise three domestic training camps focused on development, with input from support services such as Sports Med Ireland, Irish Sailing’s partner in strength and conditioning and physical training.

A secondary objective will be teaching these young competitors how a high-performance youth sailing team works both at home and in competition.
