Over 2,000 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Ireland each year and the WOWI initiative aims to get 2,013 women on the water in aid of Action Breast Cancer whilst raising over €20,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.
Registration and briefing will commence at 11.00am at the waters edge by the slipway in Garrykennedy. All participants will be allocated a boat and introduced to other participants and their skipper for the day. The start is out on the water where the racing will commence (approximately 2hrs). Racing will be followed by drinks, food and prizegiving.
On Saturday 31st August 2013 GSC invites all you ladies who have previously sailed and who have never sailed or never even been on the water, to participate in a friendly sailing race aboard a number of sailing cruisers.
