Sailing Awards Ceremony In Ireland

Ireland and sailing reached a pinnacle when Annalise Murphy received a silver medal in the Olympics in August 2016. Sailing received due attention in the country and the public interest as well. The Medal race was watched with great interest by most people of the Rio Olympic event.

Annalise Murphy had been received well with garlands and national award honors as well as elevated to the status of Volvo Sailor of the Year. The awards ceremony was held in Dublin on the last Friday of January. This helped to resurface some of the attention that had initially been grabbed after Rio was completed.

The awards ceremony brought in sailing professionals from different parts of the country and helped refresh the minds of people that much talent exists in the country in competitive sailing.
