A one day symposium will be held by Irish Sailing in January to seek ways in which sailing clubs could all collectively support each other, in collaboration with Irish Sailing, to increase participation in the Sport.
Facilitated ‘by volunteer club members, for volunteer club members’, to challenge and share how we could “Think outside the Box?” and ways to grow club sailing.
The event will be chaired by IS board member Nikki Curran from Sligo Yacht Club.
A team of passionate volunteers from various Clubs throughout the country, Elaine O'Mahony of Foynes, Colin Moorehead of Cork, Donnchadh Mac Cobb of Poolbeg and George Kingston of Kinsale and Dun Laoghaire, came up with a simple but stimulating idea.
The theme is simple and will build on the experience and professionalism that is vibrant among volunteers throughout the Clubs in Ireland.
The symposium will allow everyone to share their ideas and concerns in a workshop format and there will be various different opportunities for people to network and identify key collaborations to work on together with Irish Sailing ahead of the 2018 season. The date was set as early as possible after the traditional changing of new committees for Saturday 27 January and is on in The Plaza Hotel Tallaght. This is a free event with free tea ‘n coffee throughout the day and a discounted corporate lunch available starting off at €7 for soup ‘n sandwich and dinner for €13.
