Wexford Youth Trip

On Saturday 7th May WHSC were made very welcome at Wexford Harbour Sailing Club to continue the six week development squad initiative , to create some early season coaching sessions for our improving youth sailors

This weeks coach from WHSC was Dave Marsden who was accompanied by five boats consisting of Max Passberger and Melanie Jephson in Oppies , Jake Marsden and Fodhla Dunne in Toppers and Cormaic Doolan with his laser radial .

The fresh and gusty easterly breeze made it tricky but provided an excellent opportunity for our sailors to familarise themselves with flat water sailing , as opposed to our accompanying choppier conditions with winds in Dunmore East .

We were delighted to join in with Wexford’s coaches and rescue who provided us with starting practice , on and off water coaching , and great short courses . We look forward very much to returning the same welcome when we hope to see Wexford travel to WHSC on a Saturday in the next few weeks to be confirmed .

It is great to see our young sailors out early in the season , to also have the opportunity to travel to another venue and train with other clubs is fantastic and will surely stand to them when it comes to event and championship preparation / participation .

A big thank you to the parents who helped with travel and Andre Passberger who assisted Dave Marsden in a Rib provided by Wexford .
