Ireland’s Laser Radial spot
With Ireland having secured a boat in the Laser Radial class at the 2020 Olympic Games, three trial regattas will be used to identify the Irish Sailing Team nominee.
The following trial regattas will be used for the Laser Radial Class:
• ILCA Laser Radial Women’s World Championship, Melbourne, Australia, 21-28 February 2020 (which will replace the Genoa WC Round 2020)
• Trofeo Princesa Sofia, Palma, Spain. 28 March – 4 April 2020
• Hyéres Regatta, France, 18 – 25 April 2020
Lasers and 49ers
Both the Laser Men and the 49ers compete in Genoa this April at the European qualifier with two places available in the Laser class and one in the 49er. Whoever qualifies Ireland for a spot will automatically represent the nation.
