Congratulations to Abbie Brown from Year 10 who has been successfully selected for the Northern Ireland Topper Sailing Performance squad. This is a fantastic achievement.

Commenting on Abbie’s success, James Farrell, who is the Performance Manager for the Royal Yachting Association Northern Ireland’s (RYANI) said:

“Abbie is one of the sailors I have identified with potential within the Topper Class and is a member of my Northern Ireland Youth Performance Programme. The Programme is made up of the best Topper Sailors in the province.

The RYANI Youth Performance Programmes are run by the RYANI with funding from Sport Northern Ireland. They are run over six intensive weekends. In addition the squad sailors are required to attend and compete at key National Events, practice in their own time and undertake fitness training.”
