Given the COVID restrictions currently in place, ICRA will hold its annual Conference and AGM online on Saturday 6th March from 10:30 to 13:00.

Having ironically been unable to attend last year’s event as Headline Speaker due to the weather, RTÉ and Met Eireann’s Evelyn Cusack heads up an exciting and interesting line up of speakers at the 2021 ICRA National Conference.


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.

Join your fellow sailors as we also discuss the implications of COVID on the 2021 season.
