2016 World Championships - Further Update


Invitations to teams who achieved the qualification criteria for attendance at the 420 World and Junior European Championships have been emailed earlier today.  If successful sailors have not received their invite they should please contact the President John Elmes at president [at] sail420 [dot] com.

Countdown to Kinsale ... April 23rd


Kinsale Harbour


Now that the Munsters and the Youth Nationals have kick started the domestic racing season, we are delighted that all our 420 fleet will move to Kinsale for the second Regional event of the year.

Racing will be on April 23rd and 24th, and the club will be delighted to welcome as many of you as possible for what should be a great weekend of racing. NOR will be published in the next few days.

2016 420 World Championships - Important Update


The committee are working hard to complete plans for the 2016 420 World Championships in San Remo Italy and the full details of all the arrangements will be enclosed with the formal offers of team places, sent out on or around the 6th April. At this stage we can confirm a number of important points:

420 Promotion Flyer - Please Distribute


We now enclose a copy of the 420 flyer prepared by the ISA to promote the class.

It would be great if all members could circulate this to your fellow sailors and club members and also display on your Junior notice board. If you have a 420 class captain, please let them know or ask your Junior Convenor/Organiser to assist.  Even better - please put your own name on the poster as a local contact.

We have a new boat from Westport join us from Westport this weekend, so welcome to Roisin and Mimi.  Great to see the fleet is growing in the West and across the country.
