Sovereign Ski Topper Worlds Launch

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailThere was a great turnout in the NYC last week to announce the Sovereign Ski Topper World Championship to be held in the Club this summer. Mary Hanafin officially launched the championship and spoke about the great benefits to both sailing and tourism that these large events bring to Dublin bay. Our own sailor Annelise Murphy who is campaigning for the 2012 Olympics started her career in a Topper.  She was also in the Club for a photo shoot to publicise the event which had much coverage on the RTE new that day and in the newspapers. Finn Lynch who recently won the ISA Youth Sailor of the Year award spoke to Mary Hanafin about his success as both UK and Irish Champion in 2010.  He features in our poster which you can see in the Club entrance hall. We expect up to 300 entries for this event and hope that many of our own sailors compete!  Training started this weekend with visiting UK coach Adam Cockerill and hopefully you will see lots of Topper activity in the Club over the next few months.
