2020 Women at the Helm is Cancelled

Let's Get Ready for 2021

It is with great reluctance that we have decided, along with hosts the National Yacht Club, to cancel the Irish Sailing Women at the Helm 2020. Despite the tremendous energy behind the event, the health and safety of sailors is our number one priority, and in the light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation and the complexities arising from this it became clear that the event could not go ahead. 

Irish Sailing are extremely disappointed for yet another event to be lost to COVID this year, so we now look forward to 2021 and the Women at the Helm in Royal Cork Yacht Club.  Get your calendars out and book your leave for a trip to Cork the weekend of Sat 4th & Sun 5th Sept, Royal Cork Yacht Club. 

We had some great entries and would like to thank everyone for their incredible support and enthusiasm for the Women at the Helm.

The event is part of the Take the Helm campaign to encourage more women to move into positions of leadership. The campaign goes beyond the race course and creates leaders on committees, instructor teams and management. So we may not have the event, we do have many other opportunities to Take the Helm with friends, family and colleagues.

Keep on helming. See you in Cork. 😊
