Watersports Inclusion Games 2019

The Watersports Inclusion Games 2019 is an exciting free event for people of all abilities/disabilities across the physical, sensory, intellectual and learning spectrums and takes place at the Kinsale Yacht Club, Co Cork on the 24th and 25th August 2019.  This year’s event builds on the success of Dublin 2017 and Galway 2018, which won Project of the Year at the National Inclusion Awards

The Watersports Inclusion Games 2019 is organised by Irish Sailing, in partnership with Canoeing Ireland, Rowing Ireland and Cork Local Sports Partnership, together with Kinsale Yacht Club Sailability, Kinsale Outdoor Education Centre, Sailing Into Wellness and Spinal Injuries Ireland.

This event is aimed primarily at 10 - 21 year olds along with their families and friends but participants of ALL AGES (over 10 years) are very welcome.  Equipment will be provided. No experience required.

  • Clubs, organisations and community groups working with people with disabilities who are interested in bringing a group or individuals, or in having a presence at the expo element of the event, are invited to register their interest (see below). 
  • Individuals interested in attending the event with up to 2 family members or friends may also register for this event (Children <18 and vulnerable adults attending must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times). Watersports Activity Providers who would like to showcase their organisation at our Expo can register to do so.
