Youth Worlds - One of the Toughest Events in the Calendar

"The youth worlds is one of the toughest events in the calendar. We experienced all the wind conditions possible and, our young team showed some great promise putting in some solid results durning the series. Big lessons have been learnt for each class that are invaluable to their progression. This showed great promise for what the future holds for Irish sailing." team coach Sean Evans.

These are post race quotes I got from the sailors -

Tired, but very cool event to do.

It was really cool the way it was organised and so much fun racing against the top sailors in the world, it’s great to be racing against them.

Keep learning in the boat because you can never stop learning. Take each event at a time.
