Another event that took place at the Boat Show last Friday was the Launch
of the Accessible Sailing Programme

Waterways Ireland announced the development of a programme to support
increased access to the inland waterways for people with disabilities.

As part of the first phase of this project, an accessible sailing programme
will be organised during the summer of 2008 on the inland waterways in
conjunction with Lough Ree Yacht Club, Lough Derg Yacht Club and the SHARE
Centre on Lough Erne.

The accessible sailing programme was officially launched by Mr Edwin Poots,
MLA, Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure and Mr ?amon ? Cu?v, T.D.,
Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

Best Wishes,

Colin Becker
Project/Development Officer, IWAI
