2014 Junior Prize Giving

Hugely successful Skerries Sailing Club (SSC) Junior Annual prize-giving took place on Sunday afternoon, 7th December.

The real focus of the Junior Committee is getting all our Juniors on the water at every opportunity, and developing their skills.

30 individual mugs were presented across all fleets from our Bronze Fleet winners right the way through to representing SSC and Ireland at World events. We also presented 8 framed pictures for outstanding achievements amongst our sailors

All 26 Juniors who raced during our summer series were awarded a Certificate and 12 Perpetual trophies were presented

We also used this opportunity to thank all those parents and Senior sailors who supported us during 2014 from Safety to Race Officers. We could not make it happen without you guys!

Finally we also presented mugs to 10 of our coaches and assistants, who play a key role especially with sailors starting out.

Huge thanks to Olive Parker and Debbie McInerney for all the preparation work that went in advance of  the day, and also to our Junior Sailing Sec Brian Thornton for both running a very successful Summer racing series, and for his great work at the Prize-giving.

Spot prizes for those who attended, some finger food and deserts cooked by the Junior Committee finished off a great afternoon!
