We would like to wish our Youth Sailors Fiachra Geraghty-McDonnell competing in the ILCA 6 Class and Lucia Cullen and Alana Twomey competing in the 29’er Class the very best of luck at the ISAF Youth World Championships which are starting on December 8th in Búzios, Brasil.
Meanwhile, RSGYC’s Tom Higgins is fighting for a semi-final place at the 2023 International Youth Match Racing Championship in Australia.
The Harken-sponsored Championship is hosting some of the World’s best youth match racing talent, with competitors traveling from across the world, including the UK and Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and Brazil, as well as a strong representation from across Australia.
Racing commenced Tuesday and is running through until Friday, 8 December, in Pittwater, NSW.
It has been an action-packed season for Higgins, an Irish ILCA ace from UCD that saw him compete at the USA’s Governor’s Cup in July, as well as a historic team race win at BUSA in April and the 75th ITRA title on home waters.
