Irish Sailing Helmsmans Championships 2019
As some of you know, the Helmsmans Championships will take place in Flying Fifteens at the National Yacht Club in October. We normally nominate our current National Champion of that season (or top of ranking if it has not taken place) and for this event it will be the highest placed Irish boat in the Championship Of Ireland, which is the Pre-Worlds.
