The Irish Cruising Club has generously made a bursary fund available through Sail Training Ireland to sponsor young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and people with disabilities to undertake sailing voyages.
This all Ireland Sail Training Bursary Scheme went from strength to strength in 2016 supporting 32 young people and 2 buddies.
The voyages took place on the Lord Nelson, Brian Ború, Maybe, Morgenster. Two of the trainees from Deaf Sports Ireland participated in the Tall Ships race 3 aboard the Gulden Leeuw from Lisbon to Cherbourg. The Irish Cruising Club bursary funding is administered by the Sail Training Ireland Inclusion Sub-committee with input from The Irish Cruising Club.
