NORTHERN Ireland have been crowned World Champions after the local sailors took on the best from around the world for the Atlantic Challenge and won.
Teams of young people from around the globe converged on Lough Neagh for the toughest test of endurance, strength and skill.
The Northern Ireland crew had an outstanding week in Antrim, with big wins in the two Jackstay Transfer tasks, traditional rope work, man overboard and the rowing slalom races. They also came a close second in the navigation and slalom 2 race.
Organiser Charlie McAllister said bringing the competition to Antrim was a 'dream come true'.
