Irish Sailing Performance HQ Has Arrived

Irish Sailing Performance HQ Has Arrived


The Performance HQ containers have arrived.

The units for the new Performance HQ have arrived at the Irish Lights site in Dun Laoghaire. The HQ will be entirely mobile and consist of three converted shipping containers for ...

  • briefings and athlete education
  • a gym
  • gear storage
  • and a boat maintenance area.

The Performance HQ will provide our senior sailing athletes with an improved, multi-dimensional performance environment. One of more of the units can be shipped directly to international competitions such as the Olympics in Tokyo 2020 and provide a base for our athletes overseas.  Outside there will be a boat park and a pontoon for launching the boats.

Regular events such as the Irish Sailing Youth Pathway Nationals will continue to be hosted by clubs.

Over the next few weeks they will be moved into position and furnished while the fantastic pontoon gets the finishing touches alongside them. 

Heartfelt thanks to the Irish Sailing Foundation for fully funding this entire project and their continued support of Irish Performance Sailing's success on the world stage.

Also, many thanks to Commissioners of Irish Lights NewstalkDoyle Shipping Group and KOTARCHITECTS.
