Volvo Irish Sailing Awards

We’d like to remind you of your invitation to the Volvo Irish Sailing Awards below.

This year at the Volvo Irish Sailing Awards we’re celebrating heroism and rescue on the high seas, the young talent storming their way up the ranks, the training centres and instructors setting the standards in teaching,  the plethora of people who compete around Ireland and further afield, and the volunteers who make it all happen.

Special Fireside Chat

We’re also flying over Santiago Alegre from Spain and Simon Hoffman from Australia. These two young men saved the life of Johnny Durcan, one of our Irish Sailing High Performance sailors this summer in California, and Prof (Maurice O’Connell) will be talking to them to hear what happened.
