2016 OLYMPIC PARTNERSHIP
Providence Resources has partnered with the Irish Olympic Sailing Team in its quest for success in Rio 2016. The sailors achieved the best results in 30 years at the London 2012 Olympics finishing 4th, 10th and 14th, and have had World and European success in numerous regattas since then.
This support provides our athletes with increased contact time with coaches and support staff, and also contributes towards improved infrastructure as together we target 2016. There are a number of key events in 2015, one of the most important of which is the Rio Test Event (12-22 August). This will be a key opportunity for Providence Team IRL to prepare and qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Additionally, the 49erFX team will have an opportunity to qualify the nation this year at the World Championships in Argentina (17-22 November). Ireland’s Paralympic Sonar team will also attempt to qualify for the Rio 2016 Games at the IFDS Combined World Championships in November in Melbourne, Australia.
