Leading Irish youth sailors head south to New Zealand in search of medals.

Ireland’s leading youth Laser Radial sailors Nicole Hemeryck and Johnny Durcan, both NYC members, yesterday upped anchor to fly south to compete in the the ISAF Youth Worlds Sailing Championship in Auckland, New Zealand from 14 – 20 December 2016. This extremely competitive event features the best of the world’s youth talent and is open to sailors aged 19, this is where the stars of the future are born.

The highly contested honour to represent Ireland was earned following their success at the Laser Radial Youth World Championship in Dublin in July, where they finished seventh in their respective fleets, and when they both won the Laser Radial National Championship at GBSC. Nicole and Johnny, who is also an RCYC member, have considerable experience competing in Wold and European Championships and for both a place on the podium is the aim.
