Jack & Rosemary Roy are Afloat “Sailors of the Month” for March

Apr 1, 2020 | Sailing


When Jack retired from the Presidency of Irish Sailing on March 21st, it marked the conclusion of a hugely successful three years in the top post in Irish sailing. They were three remarkable if extremely busy years in which the active and enthusiastic President was always quietly but very effectively supported by his wife Rosemary as they involved themselves in all aspects of the sport in every part of the country.

The commitment of “Team Roy” ranged from Race Officering up to Olympic level at one end, all the way to hospitable cruising with their ubiquitous Hallberg Rassy 48 Tangaroa at the other, with just about everything possible – including continuing as regular Race Officer and Timekeeper for Dublin Bay SC on the big-fixture Thursday evening programme – frequently and competently dealt with in between.

Since his election as President in 2017, Jack and Rosemary Roy have become the very personification of all that is best in Irish sailing, and we are delighted that Afloat made them Sailors of the Month for March 2020.
