2012 Irish Mitsubushi Youth National Championships
The Championship will incorporate the ISA Youth Nationals and Trials and is also a test event for the ISAF Youth Worlds which will take place 12-21 July 2012. Notice of Race and Online Entry are now Open.
From 12-15 April 2012 over 400 sailors will compete in Dublin Bay in seven different classes (Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, 420, Feva, Topper, 29er and Optimist). For youth sailors, this event is the most important event in the annual calendar as it is the decider for the top Irish sailors to compete internationally during 2012 and is the pathway for future Olympic sailors.
Not only will the ISA Mitsubishi Youth Nationals be an important event for youth sailors, it is also a major milestone for the organisers of the 2012 ISAF Youth Worlds as it offers them the opportunity to finalise the logistics of managing such a large event incorporating three clubs, three race courses and hundreds of volunteers.
