Youth Team Named for Croatia (Podcast with Team Manager Here)

2nd May 2011
Youth Team Named for Croatia (Podcast with Team Manager Here)

After the prizes were handed out for the Youth National Championships at the National Yacht Club tonight Olympic Team Manager James O'Callaghan named the Irish team for the 2011 ISAF Youth World Championships in Croatia in July. In the podcast below the team manager talks about the stand out performances of the weekend, and the strength of youth sailing in Ireland, and the prospect of a top finish in Croatia.

Newly crowned Radial champion Philip Doran of Courtown Sailing Club will represent Ireland in the Boys single-handed division in the Laser Radial dinghy and Sophie Murphy of Quoile YC will race the Laser in the Girls Division.

In the girl's double-handed dinghy class Emma Geary and Niamh Connolly (Royal Cork YC & Baltimore SC) will race the 420 dinghy.  Ireland may yet be represented in the SL catamaran class if Alex Rumball and Ali Dix are successful at meeting the required standard this week at a French Eurocat SL16 qualification championship.
