Following demand and to launch the summer racing season, the first coaching series is proposed. It will be led by NYC Coach Sam Ledoux (former member of the Optimist Irish Team – top 10 at the Optimist Europeans, former ILCA Academy member and current senior 49er development Irish team). Sam will focus on start techniques and tactics mainly. At the completion of the programme, Sam will issue a progress report to all sailors.

Sessions will start rigged and ready for briefing at 13.00 and is expected to be finished by 17.00.


cost of the programme: €120/sailor or €36 per session

IMPORTANT: we remind you that the platform is in the process of being rearranged for summer parking and NO BOATS are to be returned to the club until SATURDAY MORNING (April 20th) at the earliest to facilitate the work of the boat house staff.

Sam will deliver support at the Ulsters (May 11th and 12th) providing we get a minimum of 4 sailors taking part. Budget will be calculated once we have a confirmed NYC team but wont exceed 150/sailor (survey has been posted on the relevant WhatsApp group)
