Expressions of Interest for Pathfinder Women at the Helm 2020 2021


Invitations Open for Expressions of Interest in the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm Regatta 2020 and 2021

We are now open to receive expressions of interest for hosting the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm Regatta in 2020 and 2021 from clubs and classes throughout the country.

Is your club interested in hosting this incredible event in 2020 or 2021 or would your class like to ensure they have a prominent presence?

As the event is for dinghy and keelboat sailors, the Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm venue requires ...

  • access for keelboats
  • 2 race areas - one for keelboats and one for dinghies.
  • availability on one of the preferred three weekends of last weekend in August, 1st or 2nd weekend September in 2020 OR 2021.

If you think your club or class are interested, all you have to do is ...

We will then forward out a detailed event request document, along with information on the full event requirements etc. 

It is hoped to announce venue and date in early October.

The Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm inaugural event at National Yacht Club last month was a resounding success, with with 61 boats and well over 200 people taking part. The atmosphere was like nothing we have ever experienced before and the feedback from participants, media and sponsors was incredible … they all want more.

Some of the feed back from skippers was truly inspirational "I think being pushed outside your comfort zone shows you that you can do more than you thought you could."; "My confidence certainly has grown in my own sailing ability."; "It helped me move from being a regular crew member to taking charge of the boat."

As a reminder of the 2019 event take a look at the gallery below and the closing article  HERE.

Every venue gives something different to an event and we are open to new ideas, but to see how 2019 was run you may like to take a scroll through the SIs and details from 2019 HERE

Any questions? Please just email me by return or call 086 2214724.
