2018 Volvo Irish Sailing Youth Pathway National Championships Announced

Irish Sailing are pleased to announce the Volvo Irish Sailing Youth Pathway National Championships. In 2018 the event will take place from the 5th–8th of April in Dun Laoghaire and will be jointly hosted by the Royal St George Yacht Club and the National Yacht Club. These clubs have a rich history in working together to deliver top quality world class sailing events with this year’s regatta promising to continue that tradition.

As in previous years the IODAI Optimist Trials will be incorporated into the regatta making it truly an event catering for all the Pathway classes with competition for the Laser Radial, 420, Laser 4.7, Optimist and Topper.

Dun Laoghaire has not hosted the Youth Pathway Nationals since 2012 so it will be great to see Ireland’s best youth and junior sailors challenging for the top spots out on Dublin Bay again in 2018.

Further details and the notice of race will be posted shortly.
