The Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School (INSS) rings in the new year with a video reviewing its action-packed 12 months in 2018.

Highlights of the school’s 40th year include the children’s summer sailing programme, with over 2,800 youngsters taking part, including more than 1,000 primary and secondary school pupils.

2018 also saw the Lula Belle join the INSS fleet as more than 800 adults were introduced to sailing. The powerboat school, meanwhile, had over 300 graduates.

What’s more, Alistair Rumball and team completed their seventh year as marine co-ordinator on the hit US TV series Vikings, which wrapped filming on its sixth season.

The INSS looks forward to changes in the year to come, including its plans to take its school on the road to assist clubs around the country.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
