The ISA is national governing body for all forms of recreational and competitive activities involving sail and engine powered craft in Ireland.
At the recent UIM (Union Internationale Motonautique) general assembly, the ISA was formally (and unanimously) approved as the recognised UIM member governing powerboat racing in Southern Ireland.
This is another step towards developing our commitment to promote motor boating activities in Ireland.
The ISA constantly monitors and reviews developments in sailing and boating and represents the interests of its members and other sailing and boating enthusiasts with government and international agencies.
The ISA has initiated the process of developing our third strategic plan (2009–2013) so that they can work to improve our services for the benefit of all boaters and sailors in the future.
The ISA also develops and administers a range of training and other services to support both members and all those involved in sailing and boating of all types, which currently includes:
Sail cruiser sailing
Motor cruiser sailing
Motor cruising (Inland Waterways)
