Foyle Sailability to host end-of-season event 04.08.15

FOYLE Sailability which encourages people with disabilities to explore the benefits of sailing will host its end-of-season event later this week in Greencastle.
It will take place on Friday, August 7, from 12 noon to 3pm as part of Greencastle Regatta.
"This has been a particularly exciting season and in my opinion, our best season yet," said chairman Cathal MacElhatton.
He said participant numbers had increased this year while more awareness was created by the Round Ireland Passage which saw local volunteers proudly fly the Foyle Sailability flag as they sailed around the entire Irish coast.

Foyle Sailability was launched in May 2013 by a group of people from throughout the north west cross border region. It aims to offer disabled people the opportunity to sail in a bid to eradicate discrimination between persons in the sport of sailing and in the wider community and to comply with the principles of equal opportunity.
Booking is essential for Friday's event via foylesailability@gmail.com or by calling Foyle Disability Resource Centre on 04871 26 6593. Group bookings are also available.
