Watersports Inclusion Games 2021

Lough Derg Yacht Club
18-20 June 2021   

This is a free event celebrating watersports for all who may experience barriers accessing mainstream sport.
It is aimed at young people and their families and friends in particular, but all ages are welcome!

 Yacht Sailing, Motor Boating and Kayaking/Canoeing are on offer!

 We will offer selected watersports experiences that will respect social distancing for participants and volunteers. Participant numbers are restricted compared to recent years to ensure as safe an environment as possible, a waiting list will be compiled for excess applicants.

All activities and equipment are provided and no experience is necessary.

Thank you to all the 2020 supporters

The Watersports Inclusion Games is supported by the Sport Ireland Dormant Accounts Sports Inclusion Fund

Participants who may require assistance with accessing vessels or craft should attend with a carer or guardian who they live with or are comfortable being in close contact with, which individual(s) can also participate in activities, as our volunteers will require to maintain social distancing.

Lough Derg Yacht Club is fully accessible with a gender-neutral accessible toilet/shower/changing room in addition to ladies and gents changing facilities, and there is a lift accessing first floor level.


The beautiful Shannon-side amenity that is Lough Derg Yacht Club boasts a spacious facility and several easy-access launch sites suiting the range of watersports that will be on offer. There will be a drop off area immediately outside the yacht club with signage directing you to parking adjacent. Although no lunch will be provided this year, participants can bring their own snacksa and indeed a picnic lunch if required which may be enjoyed at the grassed camping area adjacent to the club where space will be set-aside for participant use before or after your activities slot. Drinking water will be available on site. There are ambulant accessible toilets adjacent to the camping area. Participants will not be able to access the main activities area at the yacht club before or after their assigned activities segment apart from any necessary visit to the accessible shower-room/toilet at the premises, as areas will be sanitised after each group attends.
