This weekend sees a high profile list of competitors taking part in team racing's Elmo Trophy, being held in the Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire. This is the third year of the junior team racing event, named after the late Graham Elmes, founder of the Irish Team Racing Association.

Reflecting the growth in team racing among our young sailors, there has been huge interest in the event this year.

18 teams from around Ireland and the UK will be competing over two days, with teams of 6 under 18–year–olds sailing in two man firefly dinghys. Indeed, five additional teams had to be turned away as demand was so great to secure places.

The line up includes Laser sailors Johnny Durcan, Ewan McMahon, Luke McGrath, Conor Quinn, Jack Fahy, Sally Bell, Tom Higgins, Henry Higgins, Claire Gorman, Michael O'Sullibhan, 420 sailors Geoff Power, Kate Lyttle and Grace O'Beirne, RS200 sailors Toby Hudson Fowler and Greg Arrowsmith, RS Feva champions Henry Start and Morgan Devine and, of course, 29er sailor Harry Durcan - to name but a few.
