University Sailors Head for Schull Team Race Championships Hosted By UCC Sailing Club

#varsitysailing – The upcoming Irish University Sailing Association Intervarsity Championships will be hosted by the University College Cork Sailing Club next weekend.

This team racing event will run from the 26th to the 28th of February in the Fastnet Marine Outdoor Education Centre in Schull, Co. Cork. The F.M.O.E.C. is no stranger to events of this calibre, having hosted the Team Racing World Championships in 2011.

28 teams will travel from 9 colleges in Ireland, namely University College Cork, Cork Institute of Technology, University of Limerick, National University of Ireland Galway, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, Dublin Institute of Technology, and Queens University Belfast. The Scottish University Sailing Association will also be represented by two teams from Loughborough University.

Following day one, teams will be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets, and will race in these respective fleets on day two. On the third day, the top teams in each fleet will compete in the finals series.

In 2013/2014 the Intervarsity title was won by University College Dublin, with University College Cork finishing in second place, and University of Cork (2) in third position.

We've got a favour to ask

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.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
