TADHG Ó Loingsigh and his crew on Janx Spirit from Tralee Bay Sailing Club are the new ICRA Under 25 J24 National Champions and have qualified for the European and World championships in 2020.

They will receive a grant from ICRA to assist with their J/24 campaign which will be presented at the ICRA National Conference later this year along with a presentation on the importance of supporting under 25 programmes.

Speaking after the event at Lough Erne Yacht Club Tadhg said; “I am delighted on behalf of all the crew and Tralee Bay Sailing Club to have won the National under 25 Championships and to have qualified for next year’s World Championships.

“A lot of training and support from our fellow members of Tralee Bay Sailing Club and hard work and dedication by my fantastic crew was really the key to reaching our goal of becoming National Under 25 Champions.

This would not have been possible without the gift of a boat from Terence McGrath of MCG Logistics, Bob Walsh of Agri LLoyd, Kerry County Council at Fenit Marina and the support of our sponsors Aim Financial Planning, Conexim and my employers 4Site,” said Tadhg.
