Coaching team strengthened at Irish Sailing
One of observations of the Tokyo Olympic report commissioned by the Board of Irish Sailing was the importance of developing and maintaining a world-class coaching system. Irish Sailing are delighted therefore that there have been two significant developments in the performance coaching team:
Sean Evans, who has worked with Irish Sailing since 2018 as Academy coach now becomes the Olympic Development Coach, a role that oversees the development of athletes aspiring to undertake Olympic campaigns.
Milan Vujasinovic has been appointed Laser Radial Academy Coach. It is a role he is very familiar with, having held the position from 2011-2014. Alumni from that period include Finn Lynch and Seáfra Guilfoyle, who are both members of our senior squad. Now based in Valencia, Spain, Milan originally represented Croatia in both the Laser and Finn classes, and is a European Bronze medallist in the Finn (2016). Milan will help with the athletes’ personal development alongside the technical fundamentals such as boat handling, boat speed, and participation in international sailing, focusing on experience and not just results.
