Bcademy 2012... IMPORTANT UPDATE
Adjusted Autumn program
At the moment, a selection will have to be done for the spring program if oversubscribed. We will look at the program and its cost at the first clinic as a case study, look for comfirmed application and assess the need for a second coach/vehicle. Keep an eye for this as the job will be advertised pretty soon if necessery.
Team 2012... proposal
Easter (and therefore the Munsters) is falling in the middle of the proposed program below, furthermore I had confirmation from the ISA the youth national will be held the following week and will decide selection for the ISAF YW. The alternative proposal will stop the program after the 01/04 event. It is now possible we will look at another event before the 11/03, maybe a UK qualifier. However the UK and french national calendars are not out yet so details are impossible to give
I am now taking bookings for the Autumn program (2 clinics + Inlands)... For the Inlands trip, there are 5 spots in my jeep, first come first served! a second vehicle and a 6 spots trailer may become available soon.
Autumn program : OPEN (priority given to TY sailors whishing to qualify for the spring program)
Leinster clinic: October 18-21
Munster clinic : November 7-10
UK inlands : November 12-13
Out of the Autumn program, 10 sailors will be SELECTED to undertake the spring European program
Spring program : SELECTED SAILORS
TOTAL days away : 40 days
Note Easter is the 08/04 and per each year the Munsters are likely going to be held in Baltimore over Easter weekend which falls right in the middle of the spring program. This should not have an impact on futur selections for various big regattas although it will be monitored.
For information, the program 2011 included 33 days away, 4 events, the skiing day. The total cost per sailor was 2847EUR and included every necessery expenses (Travel, coaching/support, entry fees, accomodation, food, skiing day). Pocket money may have been used by sailors but it was a choice.
Draft 05sept 2011.
Team 2012... Expression of interest
Please let me know if you are interested in joining the program 2012. At the moment it is likely going to be a very similar program than 2011 with 30-40 days away in Europe. The program can cater for 5 sailors at the moment but I am considering doubling its potential by hiring an assistant.
interested sailors (updated september 2011): Fionn Lyden, Alfie Guy, Daragh O Sullivan, Darragh McCormack, Rory McStay, Rurai Finnegan, Katherine Geoghegan, Dan O Beirne, David Whittaker, Conor Murphy, Dara O Shea, Finn Lynch, Dermot Lyden and Peig Staunton.
