Congratulations to Sally, winner of the RYA Young Sailor of the year.

As a member of Royal North the Club is very proud of the achievements of this outstanding young sailor. From an early age Sally was noted in the Optimist fleet before moving on to the Topper class.

In 2010 she was elected to the RYANI Topper Squad and subsequently moved to the Laser 4.7 and finally Laser Radial class in 2015.

Sally was selected as a member of the RYANI Performance Academy in 2016 and then on to the Irish youth Academy early in 2017.

She has had an exceptional year, with the following results;

– 7th U21 Radial women’s Europeans, July, FRA
– 10th Radial Youth Europeans, July, POL
– 30th Radial Youth Worlds, Aug, NED

She won the Irish trials and will represent IRL at the Youth Worlds in China this December.

We wish her the best of luck in China!
