Update on the Sailability Course at the NYC

Sailability Course at the NYC

Anyone who has been around the Club this week will have seen our Sailability sailors enjoying the fine weather sailing their Hansa Dinghies and 2.4s.  We have had six children here all week between the ages of 11 to 20.   Some of them who have racing experience spent as much time as possible in the 2.4 s training for the Presidents cup in Kinsale later in the summer as part of the Leinster Team.
