The national Yacht club was represented by 10 sailors, 5 of which are on the Iodai u12 team.  Lucia Cullen (u12 team), Edward (u12 team), Ella and Jonathon Dempsey, Conor Staunton(u12team), Des, Hugh & Luke Turvey, Clementine Van Steenberg (u12 team) and Rocco Wright,(U12 team).

The weather was great but sailing conditions were light and shifty.
