Chairman & Agenda Announced for Decisive Meeting on Future of Sailing & Youth Training

#isa – Two former Irish Sailing Association (ISA) Presidents are engaged in sorting out small boat sailing and youth training problems this weekend when the ISA meets at the National Yacht Club (NYC) on Saturday to address concerns first raised at the association's agm a month ago.

Former president Paddy Maguire will chair the meeting and Roger Bannon, (the president credited with the joint membership scheme that made every member of a sailing club also a member of the ISA) will present a keynote address. It is understood the meeting will then open to the floor on the problems with small boat sailing and how can youth training be made more relevant to clubs and classes.

The meeting that has drawn considerable debate on Afloat.ie follows an ISA agm motion by Norman Lee and Brian Armstrong.

The meeting is scheduled for 10.30am in the NYC, Dun Laoghaire and is expected to be concluded by 2.00 pm.

The following agenda for the day has been agreed between the ISA and Norman Lee.

The Future of Small Boat Sailing & Youth Training –  Agenda

1. What are the problems with small boat sailing and how can youth training be made more relevant to clubs and classes.

2. How can the ISA refocus to put clubs and classes at the top of its agenda?

3. How can these issues be addressed in the short term and long term?

4. AOB
