Junior Sailing


Calling all Juniors

Calling all juniors: If you are not already involved in part of the ceremony for Annalise Murphy tomorrow we would love to see you at the East Pier Bandstand at 5.45pm to welcome Annalise and walk with her in a parade to the People’s Park for the celebrations.

Please arrive early as parking is very limited in the area.

NYC Laser sailing success continues!

NYC Laser sailing success continues! We are delighted to congratulate Nicole Hemeryck on winning the Ladies Laser Radial National Championship in Galway this weekend. This result and her 7th in the Laser Radial World Championships in Dun Laoghaire means that she will represent Ireland at the ISAF 2016 Youth Sailing World Championships in New Zealand in December. The boy’s Laser place to represent Ireland was won by RCYC’s Johnny Durcan who is also a cadet member at NYC. Claire Gorman put in a stellar performance at the Laser Nationals to win the Ladies Laser 4.7 Championship and second place overall. Well done!!!!

Where has the summer gone?  We cant believe how time has flown by as we get ready to enter our final week of the junior summer courses.  Each course has been jam-packed with fun and excitement, and  plenty of new friendships made.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all  of our junior sailors for taking part we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have having you here and hope to see you back next year.   Also a big thank you to our wonderful Instructors who have done a great job.
