The National Yacht Club Toronto, Canada is delighted to host the Women at the Helm Regatta and looks forward to a great weekend’s celebration of women’s sailing on Dublin Bay – and some great fun back on shore in the social programme.
Women at the Helm is an annual sailing regatta for dinghy and keelboat racing, where all boats are helmed (captained) by women.
This year marks the third edition of the event which will take place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August 2022 at the National Yacht Club.
Women at the Helm encourages women into positions of leadership, and to set an annual sailing goal – it may be a move from crew to helm, first time entry into a national event, or simply from a role ashore onto a boat.
Women at the Helm is an event aimed for women sailors to step up, lead the way, or support others to take the helm and be the best they can be, on and off the water.
The event sponsors SIA Partners Management Consultants has a long-standing relationship with Irish Sailing and their support for Women at the Helm brings their commitment to empowering people and supporting them in their leadership roles from the office to the water.
“The event is open to both dinghy and keelboat racing, from teens to seniors. All are welcome to enter but helms and 50% of each crew must be women.
“Prizes are awarded for Under-25 teams, all-women teams, over 60s and by class, including Ireland’s only club team prize of the Roy Family Club Perpetual Trophy.”
