St. David's Sailing team did us proud at the weekend by qualifying for the Semi Finals of the Leinster School Event hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club. The weekend event saw St David's compete against St. Andrews's College and Gonzaga. Overall they came 4th, ahead of St Gerard's, Blackrock College and Coláiste Ráithín amongst others.
Matthew, Rory, Eimear, Brianna, Sarah and Matilda were our team. They have now qualified for the 'All Ireland' School Team Racing Event on Bank Holiday May Weekend.
Mums and Dads were very supportive also with special thanks to Amanda Lawless, Brendan Farrell and Bonnie Gallagher Kilbane. Our students, Matthew and Rory, were the heroes of the day, jumping into the water and up righting a capsized boat belonging to girls of St. Andrew's College!
Well done to all involved!
