Volvo Optimist Squad Programme, supported by Volvo Car Ireland, identifies and develops Irish junior sailors through training and coaching, introduces them to international racing, and prepares them for the next stages of their sailing career. The programme includes coaching and training on the water, but also on-shore workshops which look at sports psychology, fitness, nutrition, and physiotherapy.
Congratulations and the best of luck to all.
