The 16-year-old and her sailing partner, Amy, proved themselves a force to be reckoned with in the RS 200 Southern Championships class winning 1st place as a youth team and finishing 4th overall.

Even more impressive, the girls were pitted against Olympians as well as international champions in this highly competitive class. It was won overall by Irish Olympian, Fionn Lyden.

The girls were even lucky enough to grace the cover of Irish sailing magazine, Afloat, following their runaway success.

Proud dad, Donal said: “They sailed incredibly well against some very stiff competition from all over Ireland. They won one race and had no result worse than an 8th place which shows great consistency over the 7 race series.”

Sailing talent clearly runs in the family and the championships also saw Roisin’s dad win silver in the same class as his daughter.

Roisin has been sailing for 10 years and currently competes with St Mawes Sailing Club, balancing a rigorous training schedule with her A Levels.

She is now busy preparing for the UK Inland National Championships which are set to take place in early October.
