Volvo Youth Pathway National Championships 2018

The list of entries for all fleets is now available on the National Yacht Club website here.  Entry is available here along with Notice of Race, registration of RIBs and volunteer sign up.  It is shaping up to be a great regatta in Dun Laoghaire jointly hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club and the National Yacht Club from 5th to 8th April.  Last year the event was hosted by Ballyholme Yacht Club and this year sees the Championship return to Dun Laoghaire.  There will be three race courses, 5 classes, 3 evening talks and 32 counties represented – it is Ireland’s largest youth regatta.

The eventing talks are as follows:-

Thursday 5th – Saturday 7th April, Ross Killian & Sean Evans. Each evening Ross and Sean, the Irish Sailing Performance Coaches will give video analysis and coaching tips from the day’s racing

• Friday 6th April, James O’Callaghan Irish Sailing High Performance Director will talk through the Olympic and Performance Pathway

• Saturday 7th April, Jessie Barr, Sport psychologist currently working at the Sport Ireland Institute. Jessie is a four-time 400m relay Olympian. She has worked with a number of the Laser and 420 Academy sailors.

Looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces in the dinghy park.
