16-19 April 2020, Howth Yacht Club, Dublin.
Irish Sailing’s annual Youth National Championships will take place next year on 16-19 April at Howth Yacht Club, Dublin.
This year for the first time Irish Sailing have invited the 29er class to take part in the Youth Nationals. The 29ers will be joined by the five regular classes seen at the Youth Nationals: the Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, 420, Topper and Optimist.
The Youth National Championships were started first as a means for Irish Sailing coaches to spot burgeoning young talent, and pick members for the Pathway Teams and further coaching. The event has now grown in size and purpose to be Ireland’s largest youth regatta with over 200 young sailors and their families attending each year. As well as racing, the program will include expert speakers who represent different aspects of the sport, the opportunity to learn more about the Irish Sailing Performance Pathway, meet the coaches, as well as gather in one place to have fun and socialize.
Registration via the Howth Yacht Club website will open soon
