Schull Training Camp and Munster Championship 2014 - Entries now Open!

Saturday 15th to Friday 21st February 
The 420 Schull Training Camp is taking place on the February mid term break from Saturday 15th to Wednesday 19th February. This is followed by the Munster Championship on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st. There will be  training for all levels, for those new to the class as well as those at the top. 
After consulting with the class members, nearly everyone preferred the option where sailors stay together in holiday cottages under the supervision of coaches and some parents. The sailors and coaches will cook for themselves. There will be a range of activities organised for the evening time in the houses. An outline of the camp:
