Women Go Tribal

Women Go Tribal


2019 will see a new event come to Ireland 

The Irish Sailing Women's Tribal Regatta

We have some incredible women role models taking the helm in Ireland and as a celebration of their achievements and to help encourage more teenage girls and women to take the helm, 2019 will see Irish Sailing's first Women's event and first Inter Club event.

Inter Club Competitive Streak

To build on the subtle rivalry that often plays between local Clubs, we're making it official and giving clubs a formal event to compete against eachother.

Fusion

Combining the two creates a natural fusion of competition and challenge on the water.

2018 Warm Up

To get warmed up for this new event, clubs will focus on upskilling their female sailors and work towards WOWI regattas. Both Clubs and Classes will be presenting women's helm awards at open events. Regional event details are just starting to come in, so watch Irish Sailing news and events for dates of open events throughout throughout the season.

If you are interested in getting involved contact your local club to ask when their open event is or contact Gail directly on gail.macallister@sailing.ie.
