About The Team

Skipper: Anthony O' Leary
Boat: Blazer

Anthony OLeary HelmspersonRoyal Cork Yacht Club has been a sturdy competitor in the Invitational Cup since the start. They have consistently place in the top eight in the past Invitational Cups. This may come from their background of encouraging participation in international competition at all levels, thus setting them up for future success. The team this year is again being led by the O'Leary family with Anthony O'Leary at the helm for the fourth time and his son Nicholas O'Leary again calling tactics. The rest of the team selection was based on the performance of Team Antix in the previous season and is filled with experienced sailors. (Anthony O'Leary, helmsperson, pictured at left)
