Katherine Geoghegan secures a place on the Irish Optimist sailing team

More DHSC Junior Success!

A series of sailing trials have taken place in varied weather conditions over six days in Crosshaven and on Lough Ree where the top 70 Optimist national sailors battled it out for selection by the International association to represent Ireland at the European Optimist Championships in Slovenia and the French National Championships in Brittany.

Katherine, through her endeavours at the trials sailed successfully to become part of the Irish International Development Team. The ten selected sailors now begin an intense period of training with specialist coaches to prepare for their first event in France in July. The team is made up from young sailors between the ages of 12 and 15 and they have been selected from clubs throughout the country.

This is a great achievement not only for Katherine but also for Dungarvan to have a local sailing club member selected to be a member of  an Irish Sailing Team.

Best of luck to Katherine and the rest of the Irish Optimist team
