Carrickfergus Sailing Club Represented at the Summer Olympic Games, Rio 2016
Ryan Seaton of Carrickfergus Sailing Club & crew Matt McGovern of Ballyhlome Yacht Club are two sailors who have recently qualified for their second Olympic Games, and will be representing Ireland at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil in the 49er class.
Matt and Ryan were the first athletes from Northern Ireland to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics, having finished 10th in the World Championships in December 2014.
The Carrickfergus & Bangor duo are well-versed in the pressures of Olympic qualification having previously competed at the London Games in 2012, where they finished 14th.
“Now we can focus on events in Rio rather than having to compete in Europe at the other qualifiers,” said McGovern. “ From a preparation point of view it makes things a lot smoother.”
