Last night's ICRA egm has removed a lot of uncertainty for the future direction of the cruiser racer body that was formally recast under new officers and an 'interim' constitution at its Portlaoise pow wow.
After months of turbulence for the voluntary organisation, the make-up of its executive and the location of its national championships was confirmed to the 26 members who attended the EGM.
A new 'interim' constitution was also adopted until a more comprehensive document can be tabled at the Autumn conference and agm.
The meeting also confirmed it's 'full steam ahead' for the National Championships to be hosted by Galway Bay Sailing Club in August, the first time the event will be sailed in Galway Bay.
ICRA Executive nominations were received and a new executive appointed under Commodore Simon McGibney and Vice Commodore Richard Colwell. The Hon Secretary is Cxema Pico, and the Hon. Treasurer is John Leech.

Simon McGibney (Commodore)
