After last year's successful Belfast Lough inaugural staging of the Irish Sailing Youth Pathway National Championships, the regatta stays on the east coast in 2018 with the Irish Sailing announcement today that the event will take place from 5th–8th of April in Dun Laoghaire, jointly hosted by the Royal St George Yacht Club and the National Yacht Club

As in previous years the IODAI Optimist Trials will be incorporated into the regatta making it an event catering for all the Pathway classes with competition for the Laser Radial, 420, Laser 4.7, Optimist and Topper.

Dun Laoghaire has not hosted the Youth Pathway Nationals since 2012 so it will be great to see Ireland’s best youth and junior sailors challenging for the top spots out on Dublin Bay again in 2018.

Further details and the notice of race will be posted shortly.
