ISA Senior All Ireland Championship

The ISA All Ireland Sailing Championship will begin tomorrow in Lough Derg Yacht Club. 21 of Ireland’s leading sailors compete over the three days in the ISA’s fleet of J80's for the title of 2012 Champion and the ISA Helmsman’s Trophy.

Reigning champion George Kenefick is back to defend his title but he'll face some stiff competition from not one or two but three past Olympic sailors; Peter O'Leary, Ryan Seaton and Mark Mansfield.

Also competing will be Fionn Lyden, the recent winner of the ISA Junior All Irelands who will be sailing with his cousin and Junior ISA All Ireland silver medallist Eoin Lyden.

See competitors and their crew...
