The Irish Team Racing Association has given its support to the new Schools team racing initiative launched by Gonzaga College and the Irish National Sailing School.
The INSS event will consist of one day's team racing using the INSC’s fleet of double-handed dinghies. It is open to all Leinster schools and schools can field more than one team. In the long term, it is hoped to build the event into a league and possibly introduce a fleet for younger sailors using RS Feva double-handed dinghies. More on the event here
ITRA's Ailbe Millerick says the association will help with the race organisation, training and umpiring for the event on the 16th January 2019.
ITRA hopes the inaugural match will be a good pre-event warm-up for the Leinster Schools Championships in March.
