2015 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships

The Irish Sailing Association Nomination and Selection Guidelines for the 2015 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship can be viewed or downloaded here

The objective of the nomination system is to set out the criteria against which the Olympic Steering Group will recommend to the board of the ISA, the Irish team for the 2015 Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship to be held in Langkawi, Malaysia.

Traditionally the ISA Youth Pathway Nationals has been the sole domestic trial event for potential Irish candidates but given the late date of the World Championships, alternative domestic events have been listed in the selection criteria closer to the December event date. Information on the 2015 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship can be found here.

ISA Academy Selection Criteria


The ISA Academy has been developing Ireland’s most ambitious young sailors between the ages of 15 to 18 years for just over a decade. 

In 2006 as part of the ISA Performance department (Ring Fenced ISC Funding) the Academy underwent a major revamp, remodeling its objective to aide aspiring young sailors to ‘learn the skills to develop into independent Olympic campaigners by nurturing a culture of responsible athletes with a hunger for international performance.’ 
 Since that time a holistic approach to personal development has been at the core of the Academy’s philosophy. It has recognised that the best sailors in the world love sailing and given that it’s a long term development sport (compared to most Olympic Sports) appreciation of fun and enjoyment of the process of learning has always been fundamental to the Academy’s training.
