The Irish Cruiser Racing Association (ICRA) is running a workshop to examine the future role of ICRA this month.
ICRA has issued an invitation to clubs and individuals that are key to the development of cruiser racing with a view to develop a plan to chart the way forward for ICRA.
ICRA has been in existence now for 16 years and has organised 16 national championships and annual conferences in that time.
In addition ICRA has been developing a training and development role for cruiser racing in recent years. ICRA is recognised by Irish Sailing [IS, formerly ISA] as the national body to perform these tasks.
ICRA is now at the point where it feels the need to take an 'in depth look at its role' in the future.
Following this workshop a draft plan will be prepared and circulated with a view to being approved at the ICRA annual conference on Saturday, 24th February, 2018.
The meeting will take the form of a brainstorming session led by Steve Griffiths of gcass, who is a former Strategy Development manager with World Rugby and Head of Organisation Development with that body over an eighteen year period.
