Craftinsure Continues Support of Irish Optimist Class

16th February 2021
Launching Optimist dinghies at Skerries in North Dublin

Craftinsure will be supporting the Irish Optimist dinghy class again this year.

IODAI president, Alexander Walsh, says "IODAI are delighted to welcome Craftinsure as sponsors again for 2021".

The partnership has now passed its 10th anniversary.

Craftinsure director, Rod Daniel, has great memories of IODAI events that Craftinsure has supported over the years, including when his younger son sailed in the Optimist Leinsters at Skerries and had a wonderful time.  "The guys at Skerries sailing club and IODAI members could not have been more helpful," says Rod.

'Re-opening sailing clubs and reinstating youth sailing events when safe to do so can only be good for young people's well-being' he adds.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
