Last Year's Winner

Royal St George Yacht Club

With its large active sailing membership, the club made its mark last year when it staged the ISAF Youth Worlds along with the National Yacht Club and Royal Irish Yacht Club. The Royal St George “machine” generated goodwill and cooperation from the local community and among the many volunteers from several clubs, who gave freely of their time to make the mega-regatta such a triumph. The ultimate success of the regatta was highly praised by ISAF President Goran Petersson.
