The ISA is pleased to announce that the 2013 ISA Youth Nationals & Junior Pathway Championship will be held from the 4th to the 7th of April in Lough Derg Yacht Club.
This will be the event's first visit to Lough Derg and will undoubtedly prove to be an exciting championship which includes the Irish team trials for the ISAF Youth Worlds as well as various ISA Squads. Places will be contested hotly in the event with many of the top performers from last years event in Dun Laoghaire such as Finn Lynch (ISAF Youth Worlds silver medallist) and Fionn Lyden ( All Irelands senior silver medallist ) in the running amongst others for an ISAF slot.
The Championship is the prime showcase for the ISA Performance Pathway with the 420, Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, Topper, Optimist and Feva all represented at the event. Last year's event hosted a remarkable fleet of over 250 boats in Dun Laoghaire and Lough Derg is hoping to attract a similar number to Ireland's premier youth regatta.
