Letter from Norbert Reilly ICRA Commodore
ICRA conference is a meeting for ALL Cruiser Racing…Boat Owners..Crew and their clubs. At the last conference we launched our “More Sailors…..More Sailing” campaign…
…based on our experience we have put together a strong programme for 2014 and we need YOUR HELP!!
Cyclists see bunch guys flying down the French mountains and go out and spend € thousands on a bike… even more on kit… then head out as target practice for motorists… punctures miles from home… poisoned by car fumes… and completely exhausted with miles to go!!
Americas Cup captivated the viewers and we need to use it to recruit… we have the Moth fleet to excite the youths.
Below please find some of the items from our agenda….it will get more Crew for your boat and more Members for your Club
Any ideas/suggestions you want on agenda…just email us [email protected]
Please don’t expect someone else to do the job…Its you I need.
See you Saturday 23rd!!
In addition to our keynote presentation by Matt Sheahan:
FOILING WITH THE AMERICA’S CUP
Philip Bendon and his Match Racing Irish Team will present:
HOW TO BECOME EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS
Other agenda items are:
Commodore’s Cup Team: Team Up Date
Crew Training Programme: Comprehensive Modules for all clubs
Crew Point: Plan to link Crew to Boats in your club
ICRA Club Rep Role: It won’t happen unless ICRA and Clubs work closer
ICRA IT: Ideal platform for targeting new sailors!..for your boat
