American Presence At Royal Cork For St. Patricks Weekend

Juan Carlos Romeros flew in from the United States last night to head up a

four day racing clinic at the Royal Cork for forty plus of our aspiring optimist sailors.

 Originally from Ecuador, Juan Carlos has been based in the states for the last

twelve years and is currently head coach at Lauderdale Yacht Club. In addition to this position,

Juan has been an integral part of the US national optimist team coaching staff for the last six years

and has played a significant role in the success of the US team both at home and abroad.

 Optimist class captain, Linda O’Keeffe said she was delighted to welcome Juan Carlos to the club for the four day clinic. In addition,

she wished to thank Nigel Young of North Sails Ireland for helping to secure Juan to head up the clinic over St. Patricks weekend.

 Juan will be ably assisted by a team of local coaches who are currently involved in the March/April Optimist club spring coaching programme

(of which this four day clinic is an integral part).
