Round Fastnet Powerboat Raid
Start your Powerboat cruising season with The Round Fastnet Raid on 26
March 2001. It's a day cruise of about 30nM, which is being organised as
part of theIrish Sailing Association Powerboat Instructor Conference in
Schull, West Cork, Ireland.
Although this event is primarily aimed at ISA Powerboat Instructors
attending the conference, visitors are also welcome.
Very early plans are also afoot to form an Irish Powerboating Association .It is hoped that this Association will be allowed to affilliate to the Irish Sailing Association . For our UK readers , the ISA is our equivalent of the RYA . Excellent links between the RYA and ISA are well established and our training schemes and qualifications are cross recognised .
The aims of the Irish Powerboating Association will be to promote the
enjoyment of the sport of Powerboating in a safe and responsible manner
through events and rallies and to represent the general interests of
Powerboaters . A small nucleus of Irish Powerboaters has already formed so
that the concept can be further developed . If you would like to find out
more , offer advice or get involved in the development of this Association , then you can
obtain further details from:
