On Saturday 26th of August Irish Sailing along with the National Yacht Club hosted a 'Homecoming Celebration' to recognise to incredible achievements of both our Senior and Development athletes over the summer.
An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Denis O'Callaghan of Dun Laoghaire and Rathdown joined us for the evening, to congratulate these athletes.
We held a Q&A with the athletes to get a closer insight into their experiences of training, their coaches and the mental game at regattas. Finn Lynch as the more senior member of the Irish Sailing Team spoke to the younger athletes that sat around him on the importance of focusing on the sport itself and not the results.
An inspiring evening! It was an important marker of the country’s qualification and a benchmark for how athlete coaches, club coaches and class leadership can coordinate in order to let young talent shine.
