CARA Awards 2017

Sailing Stands out in Awards

Irish Sailing congratulates CARA on their 10th birthday being the National Centre for development of inclusive sport in Ireland and on hosting such an inspiring celebration yesterday at their National Awards ceremony.

Irish Sailing was delighted to have been shortlisted for two awards with Donal Hickey of Kinsale Sailability for the Volunteer of the Year Award and Irish Sailing for Best Inclusive National Governing Body Award.

The Watersports Inclusion Games stood out as the highlight of the year for promoting access to watersports and we are looking forward to Games II in Galway in 2018.

We wish to congratulate Hilary Doonan from Special Olympics and Tennis Ireland for winning the respective awards but we know we will back for more in 2018.
