Dublin – February 04th, 2021
ICRA will hold its annual conference and AGM online on Saturday 6th March from 10:30 to 13:00 due to COVID restrictions.
The implications of the pandemic on the 2021 cruiser-racer season will be discussed, according to association spokesman, Dave Cullen.
ICRA has already moved its 2021 National Championships out from May to September and this May’s Scottish Series has been totally revamped as a purely on the water event in a bid to stage Scotland’s biggest sailing event after 2020’s cancellation.
Weather forecasting and sailing
Having ironically been unable to attend last year’s event as Headline Speaker due to the weather, RTÉ and Met Eireann’s Evelyn Cusack will join ICRA this year covering the topic of “weather forecasting and sailing”.
While the event will naturally be shorter due to being online, the conference will have a number of experts offering advice on all aspects of racing and yacht preparation and will be followed by the AGM.
