We are happy to announce the following sailors as the 2018 Irish Sailing Laser 4.7 team.

  • Alana Coakley - Royal St George Yacht Club
  • Charlie Cullen - National Yacht Club & Royal St George Yacht Club
  • Ellie Cunnane- Dingle Sailing Club
  • Conor Horgan - Royal Cork Yacht Club & Baltimore Sailing Club
  • Joseph Karauzum - County Antrim Yacht Club
  • Finn Walker- Royal St George Yacht Club

This year the Laser 4.7 team will compete in the class World Championships in Gdynia, Poland. The aim of the Laser 4.7 squad is to introduce team members to the skills needed to be part of a team preparing for an international regatta. Domestic training weekends will build towards the World Championships, working with coach Debbie Hannah the team will focus on event preparation, building their tactical and technical knowledge prior to departure, In July the team will travel to Poland to proudly represent Ireland following the hard work they have put in at home. With Gydina being Poland’s premier sailing venue it is likely that these sailors will return here again in another class, so everything learned on this trip will be valuable in the future. 

The first training camp for the Laser 4.7 class will be on the 12th of May.

Congratulations and best of luck with the season ahead.
