Sia Partners announced as new title sponsor of the Irish Sailing Women at the Helm
To mark International Women’s Day, Irish Sailing is delighted to announce that Sia Partners, the global consultancy, are coming on board to sponsor the successful Women at the Helm regatta.
Women at the Helm is an annual sailing regatta for dinghy and keelboat racing, but all boats are helmed (captained) by women. Now in its third year, the event will take place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August 2022 at the National Yacht Club.
Women at the Helm encourages women into positions of leadership, and encourages them to set an annual sailing goal – it may be a move from crew to helm, first time entry into a national event, or simply from a role ashore onto a boat. We want women sailors to step up, lead the way, or support others to take the helm and be the best they can be, on and off the water.
Gary O’Sullivan, Managing Partner Sia Partners UK & Ireland said “we have a long-standing relationship with Irish Sailing and are delighted to partner with them on Women at the Helm. Sia Partners are committed to empowering people and supporting them in their leadership roles. This event brings these values directly from the office to the water”.
Women at the Helm is open to both dinghy and keelboat racing, from teens to seniors. All are welcome to enter the event but a woman must helm and 50% of the crew must be women.
