‘All Under One Roof’ For Irish Sailing National Conference & Awards Next Month

5th February 2020
‘All Under One Roof’ For Irish Sailing National Conference & Awards Next Month

Saturday 21 March is the date for Irish Sailing’s 2020 National Conference, AGM and Irish Sailing Awards at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire.

This year the governing body is bringing all aspects of sailing here under one roof, with a choice of three conferences taking place simultaneously throughout the day.

Firstly, the Race Management and Support Conference will cover the promotion of racing, policies and race management training. It is open to anyone involved in events, not just race officials.

Meanwhile, the Training Conference has sessions that include preparing for the sailing season, developing instructors, improving standards and making the most of the Irish Sailing Passport. This conference is open to all training management, volunteers and instructors.

And all club management and volunteers are invited to the Club Symposium, for the sharing of ideas to promote sailing and with sessions on sustainability, inclusion and diversity, grant applications, bursaries, and new programmes from Irish Sailing.

Following the conferences, Irish Sailing’s AGM will take place at the Martello Suite, which in turn will be followed by a reception and the Irish Sailing Awards — decided from’s Sailors of the Month in 2019 — in the Carlisle Suite.

Booking for each conference and for the Irish Sailing Awards is now available online, and special rates have been arranged at local hotels for those who wish to make a night of it.
