Irish Sailing Association need boat owners to assist with Volvo Ocean's Galway stopover 17/4/08

The Irish Sailing Association and “Let’s do it Galway Team” are looking for boat owners who would like to get involved with the Volvo Ocean Race’s Galway stopover in May/Jun 2009.

They are looking for volunteers who can help with the race management functions (escorts, umpiring, marshalling, mark laying, committee boats etc.) and registered passenger boats for the media and corporate hospitality functions.

The range of craft needed vary in size and operational capacity, a rough guide being: 6-10 metres long; operational capability from 10-35knots; with an offshore range from 5-20 nautical miles. In addition there will be a requirement for some larger registered passenger craft to fulfil Corporate Hospitality.

If you own a boat and are interested in helping to make this event a success, please contact for further details.
