We would like to wish Patrick Hassett the very best of luck as he heads off to the World Para Sailing Championships in Cadiz this weekend. Patrick is a first year Engineering student in UCD and cadet member of the Club. He has been sailing since his early teens but within the last couple of years has been concentrating on racing in the 2.4mR class. In 2017 he travelled to Poland to train and compete in a youth European Parasailing event as part of the Irish squad.

This winter Patrick competed in the Frostbite Series in the PY class and has been training almost daily since he finished his College exams in May. He had an intense week long training last week in Dunlaoghaire with a number of the under 25s squad providing excellent match racing competition in a 2nd 2.4mR.  He will charter a boat in Cadiz and will receive coaching at the event organized through World Sailing. We wish him all the best over there and will be following his progress closely.
