2015 ISAF Sailing World Championships

As a change from summer scheduling the 2015 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will be held this December in Langkawi, Malaysia.

Irish teams have returned two ISAF Youth Worlds medals (Finn Lynch & Seafra Guilfoyle) since 2012 at the pinnacle youth sailing event. Despite the additional cost required this year the ISA remains intent on fielding a well prepared team provided that eligible candidates win their domestic trials and also achieve a top 20% placing in their Youth category at selected international Youth competitions.

Traditionally the ISA Youth Pathway Nationals has been the sole domestic trial event for potential Irish candidates but given the 8 month gap to the event alternative domestic events have been listed in the selection criteria closer to the December event date.

ISA Academy Selection Criteria

The ISA Academy has been developing Ireland’s most ambitious young sailors between the ages of 15 to 18 years for just over a decade. 

In 2006 as part of the ISA Performance department (Ring Fenced ISC Funding) the Academy underwent a major revamp, remodeling its objective to aide aspiring young sailors to ‘learn the skills to develop into independent Olympic campaigners by nurturing a culture of responsible athletes with a hunger for international performance.’ 
 Since that time a holistic approach to personal development has been at the core of the Academy’s philosophy. It has recognised that the best sailors in the world love sailing and given that it’s a long term development sport (compared to most Olympic Sports) appreciation of fun and enjoyment of the process of learning has always been fundamental to the Academy’s training.
