IODAI Teams Train in Cork Sunshine

The two IODAI Development Teams and the Under 12’s squad were training in Cork at the Royal Cork Yacht Club this weekend. The teams were trained under the watchful eye of their coaches:

Under 12 Squad: Thomas Chaix and Clíodhna Ní Shuilleabháin

IDT France: Dara O’Shea

IDT Poland: Michal Gryglewski


The three teams got together for a fun BBQ in RCYC after training in the sun all day on Saturday.  After an early start on Sunday, more tactics, training, races and fun on the water, the teams headed home to the four corners of Ireland.


Thank you to RCYC for hosting the training sessions and to the weather Gods for sending sunshine for the weekend!
