With plenty of watersports to try out, the event showcases the latest on adaptations and innovations for optimised watersports delivery and promotes the benefits to health and wellbeing of accessible inclusive watersports participation.

Building on the success of Dublin 2017 and Galway 2018, the Watersports Inclusion Games 2019 will take place in Kinsale this year hosted by Kinsale Yacht Club and will see the biggest showcase yet of inclusive watersports activity with the latest on adaptations and innovations for optimised watersports delivery and a focus on examining, measuring and promoting the theraputic benefits of water activity and the impact of watersports on wellbeing.

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.

For ALL registrations of interest contact Johanne at wsinclusion@gmail.com who will outline booking details.

This is a FREE event and includes all activities, tuition, safety equipment and a packed lunch on both days.

Due to very limited capacity, the event prioritises those who experience day to day barriers in accessing mainstream sport due to disability or by other reason.

 

This event is funded by the Sport Ireland Dormant Accounts Sports Inclusion Fund
