The Irish Sailing Association Board announced their team to represent Ireland at the 2010 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championships, which takes place in Istanbul, Turkey from 8 - 17 July 2010
More than 340 young sailors from 63 nations will compete across eight disciplines, of which Ireland will compete in four. The team was selected based on performances at both the ISA Youth Nationals in Schull and the Mitsubishi Youth Regatta in Dun Laoghaire.

The Irish Team is:

Mathew O'Dowd (Royal St.George Yacht Club ): will compete in the Laser Radial Boy's One Person Dinghy

Sophie Murphy (Quoile Yacht Club): will compete in the Laser Radial Girl's One Person Dinghy

Cian O'Regan (Kinsale Yacht Club) & Scott Flanagan (Yacht Club): will compete in the 420 Boy's Two Person Dinghy

Jane Butler & Jennifer Andreasson (Royal St George Yacht Club): will compete in the 420 Girl's Two Person Dinghy

James O'Callaghan ISA Performance Director said:

"Achieving the nomination to represent Ireland at the Youth Worlds is a two part process. Initially sailors have to win the ISA nomination series, which combines the recent ISA Youth Nationals and the Mitsubishi Motors Youth Championship. The second criterion is the attainment of a defined international standard at pre-identified events."
"This year's team is extremely strong," said O'Callaghan, "They have the potential to achieve, not just in Turkey but within the longer term Olympic programme."

In 2012 the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will take place in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, Ireland.
