‘Finding Saoirse’ – ladies 1720 report

An NYC ladies team recently entered for the 1720 Europeans held in Dun Laoghaire from 16-18 June.
The team are a group of NYC sailing mums who are more normally to be found shoreside, organising junior coaching and racing. They are part of a larger group of mums who regularly sail on the team club boats.

The skipper and team organiser was Fiona Staunton. Fiona is an experienced sailor but the crew were of varying levels of experience and none had prior experience of sailing 1720s. In March, the goal was set for the Europeans Championships, we chartered NYC1, which we have since re-baptised ‘Finding Saoirse’ as it initially proved to be an impossible task, and began to train.
