My Personal Message

Thank you for visiting the Irish Sailing Association’s Women on the Water Ireland (WOWI) fundraising page. We’re proud to have partnered with Action Breast Cancer as part of Irish Cancer Society for their ‘Get The Girls’ initiative and we would be incredibly appreciative of your support in helping us raise over €20,000 for this worthy cause.

An average of 2,000 women are diagnosed breast cancer every year in Ireland. For 2013 we want to get 2,013 women on the water through the ISA’s WOWI programme whilst raising €20,130 in aid of Action Breast Cancer. We want to encourage ever sailor, sailing school and club in Ireland to invite the girls to ‘Get on Board’ this year for a donation of €10 to this My Charity page. If we can do that over the next 12 months then we will not only have achieve our fundraising goal but we will in turn have introduced over 2,000 more women to a healthier, active lifestyle and a sport for life.

How can you get involved?
Sailors - Invite a female friend to join you on the water for a donation of €10.
Clubs - Organise ladies regatta day for a donation of €10 or run a taster session during an open day for a €10 donation.
