Women at the Helm Prepare for 2020 Event
Although we’re still living in uncertain times, we’re looking ahead and planning for the best way of bringing the sport of sailing to as many people as possible. As part of this, the 2020 Irish Sailing Women at the Helm Regatta will go ahead on 29 & 30 August at the National Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire.
The event organisers are planning for a safe social and sailing environment and working within the Irish Sailing and Government guidelines to ensure the safety for all participants and volunteers, as well as the local community. The success of last year’s inaugural event shows what a great opportunity the Regatta is to showcase the strength and leadership of women in sport and their ability to adapt in a changing environment.
The Irish Sailing Women at the Helm event will be one of the very few national sailing events held this year, and we aim to give people a brilliant event to look forward to, and a collaborative experience to remember.
We have opened up an Expression of Interest registration. Sailors and volunteers can register their interest in helming, crewing, chartering or volunteering, as well as give input into their views on alternative options if we should need to adapt the event.
