On Tuesday 19th March Olympic silver medalist Annalise Murphy will be doing a very special talk about her Olympic success when she headlines a fundraising event for Olympic campaigners and 49er sailing hopefuls Robert Dickson and Sean Waddilove.
The fundraiser takes place just ten days before the pair go into action at the Princess Sofia Palma Regatta in Spain from 30th March.
The Northside sailors recently won the Afloat.ie Irish ‘Sailors of the Year’ title and are sailing full-time as part of their training and event regime in an effort to secure a qualification place for Tokyo in 2020.
The event will be hosted by the Marine Hotel in Sutton and sees Howth Yacht Club and Sutton Dinghy Club combining to promote the fundraiser for the local sailors.
All are welcome to attend and tickets (€10 for adults, €5 for students) will be available at the door and the event begins at 8 pm.
