The Paralympic Fundraiser for John Twomey and team

This year the Perry Knox Gore Trophy is being run as a club fundraiser for our Paralympic sailing team heading for Rio in August. This is a great oppurtunity for everyone in club to go racing, have some good craic on the water and at the same time put our hands in our pockets for John, Ian And Austin.

The lads have been building towards games for the past 4 years and have circled the globe in their efforts to achieve qualification for the games in the 3 man Sonar keelboat. They qualified at the World Championships out in Melbourne in December and have since sailed in Florida, France, Holland and are heading out to Rio for the Olympic test event in July.

So not only is the schedule demanding but also financing such a campaign is almost a full time role in itself. We want to wish John and the team the best of luck for Rio and contribute in a small way towards the campaign.

We are asking everyone to turn out in numbers on Friday July 1st for this All-in race for keelboats and that each crewmember make a contribution of €10.
