Recently five Royal Cork Topper sailors (Lucy Donworth, Molly Murphy, Ronan Walsh, Eoin O’ Regan and Adam D’Arcy) travelled to Howth YC to receive expert coaching from GBR National Coach, David Cockerill. Our sailors were joined by fifteen other sailors from around the country for the pre Youth National Clinic.
The mixed and challenging weather conditions were an ideal forum for David to impart his considerable knowledge of the Topper on our young sailors.
Guidance in boat handling and tactical skills were followed up by in depth theory sessions, video footage, key point summaries and individual feedback from David.
One of the highlights of the weekend was when support coach and ISAF Youth silver medallist winner Finn Lynch took to a Topper to compete against the sailors.
A big thank you to Annamarie Fegan who transported the sailors to and from Dublin.
