Spanish Sailing Exchange Opportunity

Two Spanish optimist sailors are looking to do an exchange with an Irish sailing family.

  1. An 11 year old boy from Las Palmas Gran Canaria.  He is looking to do the UK nationals, in return your child could do an international Oppie or Laser event in Gran Caria at any stage in next year.  He has a boat in Ireland and will be in Drogheda prior to the UK Nationals. Speaks good English  Their club in Las Palmas is a massive dinghy club from which many Olympians emerge.
  1. A 14 year old boy from Barcelona, top level sailor looking to do a longer exchange with an Irish sailor. He wishes to come to Ireland for 3 to 4 months and attend a local school and sail Oppies here. He speaks almost fluent English. In exchange your child could spend a similar length of time with his family in Barcelona sailing Oppies, 29er or Laser.  Again they sail out of a very competitive dinghy club where the Spanish National Coach, Magda Resano is their lead coach.

If any of these exchanges are of interest to you please contact Linda O’Keeffe at: .
