Through the recently announced 2014 ISA Optimist Squad, six Royal Cork sailors will soon travel to the warm airs of Palma to take part in the annual International Regatta.
Congratulations to the sailors in question. Chris Bateman, Caoimhe Foster, Tom Keal, James McCann, Cathal O’Regan and James Spillane. All six make up one third of the Irish ISA squad that will travel and all worked hard throughout this year to secure places.
The Palma Regatta will comprise of three hundred and fifty plus optimist sailors from sixteen countries competing across four scheduled days of sailing in early December. It is one of the longest running sporting events within the Balearic Islands and continues to grow in popularity year on year.
This will be a great learning curve for the entire ISA squad and we wish the best of luck to all involved.
