Sailing – Home Nations’ Cup 2013

Congratulations to Grosvenor sailor Tom Purdon who was selected to represent Northern Ireland at the prestigious Home Nations’ Cup in Scotland earlier in the month.  The event saw 12 elite sailors from Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England compete in challenging conditions over the weekend of Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd February.

For Tom, Form Three, selection for the event came as one of the six members of the Northern Ireland team in the ‘Topper’ class.

Participation at this event was the latest in a long list of sailing achievements for Tom over recent times, including selection in each of the past two years for the Irish Sailing Association’s National Topper squad, which trains across Ireland throughout the winter months. 

Well done to Tom on his recent success and we wish him the best of luck over the coming season.
