Is this program for you?
The coaching is designed for sailors who wish to improve their racing skills for competition in Regional and National events. Our group are typically 14 to 17 years of age and weigh upward of around 53kg. New entrants who previously competed in Optimists or Toppers are welcome. If sailors are unsure, we are happy to have them join the group on a trial basis to “try out”. Less confident sailors can opt out of the heavy wind sessions. With the 4.7 worlds scheduled for Dun Laoghaire in summer 2021, this is an ideal opportunity for aspiring sailors to gain international experience.
Boat Parking, Launching and COVID restrictions:
All sailors should launch from their own clubs where they should have fully paid up boat parking. Parking space is limited limited. All sailors are to follow COVID related guidelines in force at their sailing clubs at the time of the coaching. For avoidance of doubt, please see https://www.sailing.ie/Coronavirus for full details on the Irish sailing plan for “living with COVID”
Our panel includes local coaches; Jack Fahy, Toby Hudson Fowler, and Henry Higgins who have a wealth of international experience and connect well with this age group.
