Canoeing Ireland were delighted to be partnering with Irish Sailing in coordinating the Watersports Inclusion Games on the 25th & 26th June at the Lough Derg Yacht Club, Co. Tipperary. The annual family friendly event invited people of all abilities to experience a range of different watersports; sailing, powerboating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle-boarding, water -skiing and tandem biking. Due to the unfortunate weather conditions rowing, dragon boating were not able to go ahead, but there were still plenty of smiles on the water with people getting out in a range of water craft.
Despite the weather over 100 participants came along to enjoy the sports, and the craic! Over 70 volunteers joined the weekend to help make everything on offer possible – a big thank you to all of the Canoeing Ireland members who volunteered and made trying out paddlesports a brilliant experience!
We look forward to being involved again in 2023 where the event will be hosted in Wexford Town!
