Finn lynch.  At the Laser class world championships in Mexico last night, 20–year–old Finn Lynch’s Olympic dream came true when he won his place at the Rio games. The young NYC  sailor becomes the youngest ever Irish sailing helmsman to qualify for the Olympic Games!

“This is a particularly welcome result for Finn who has been on a promising trajectory since he first won silver for Ireland at Topper Worlds seven years ago,” commented James O’Callaghan, ISA Performance Director. “Winning the place for Rio is massive and the experience should serve to propel his career even further” The result moves Lynch overnight from ISA Development sailor to full senior Providence Team Ireland status.
