Irish Youth Nationals at the NYC

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail Great Success for the NYC at the Youth Nationals The 2011 Mitsubishi Youth Nationals held last weekend as a combined waterfront clubs event was deemed a great success! The NYC had a large number of Juniors entered and we were very well represented in the prizes as you will see below. There were challenging sailing conditions with an easterly wind bringing large swells but the sailors managed all that came their way. The Chairperson of ISAF Fiona Kidd visited the event and was very pleased with our organisational infrastructure. Next years ISAF Youth Worlds in Dun Laoghaire will be something we can all be proud of. The wonderful photos below which give you a sense of the tough racing conditions but also the smiles and fun that was had. This only could happen with all the help from our club members and staff who launched, rescued, fed and entertained the 300 sailors and their families for the four days! The NYC did particulary well in this event. The following are the list of prize winners: Our new Cadet member Philip Doranwon the boys Radial ISAF place with Eoin Keller in 3rd place.
