Irish Sailing organised the first Watersports Inclusion Games this summer in Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin.

The aim of the Games was two-fold: to encourage people of all abilities from the physical, sensory, intellectual and learning difficulty spectrums to come and try watersports; and to show watersports providers that with a bit of training and planning, they can facilitate people of all abilities on the water.

Participants and their families had a chance to try sailing, rowing, canoeing/kayaking and fast boat rides. A short film illustrates the action below
