There are three sailing finalists in the 2018 Cara National Inclusion Awards and confirms that sailing really is a “Sport for All”.

Irish Sailing’s incredibly successful Watersports Inclusion Games, hosted in Galway this year, is a finalist for the 2018 Project of the Year.

East coast club, Bray Sailing Club have been shortlisted for 2018 Best Inclusive Club of the Year and Sail Training Ireland for Youth Development in the Adventure category.

In 2015 Irish Sailing was awarded Best Inclusive National Governing Body and in 2017 Donal Hickey of Kinsale Yacht Club and Sailability won Volunteer of the year for his region.

Full 2018 nomination details are here.

Irish Sailing currently awaits formal approval for Watersports Inclusion Games for 2019. The Association plans to build on the success of the past events and their focus for 2019 is making sailing available for all and clubs including supporting volunteers to facilitate sharing the joys of sailing.
