Irish Sailing are working with Pieta House to support Darkness into Light. This is Pieta’s annual fundraising campaign to raise vital funds for people affected by suicide and self harm. The events take place on Saturday May 7, beginning in darkness at sunrise and continuing through to dawn to symbolise the journey from despair to hope.
This year for the first time, a number of sailing clubs around the country will host their own sailing events to support Darkness into Light. Weather permitting, there will be a mix of dinghies, cruisers and ribs all sailing out towards the dawn and returning to their clubs for breakfast. Clubs taking part include: Bantry Bay Sailing Club, Bray Sailing Club, Galway Bay Sailing Club, Galway City Sailing Club, Howth YC, Royal Irish YC, and the Royal St. George YC.
We know that sailing and being on the water has huge mental health benefits – Darkness into Light is a great way of joining people together to be the light against the dark.
