Irish Sailing, the national governing body for the sport in Ireland, has issued a statement following the rescue of its 16-boat National Optimist Squad during Storm Brian on Saturday lunchtime in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. In the statement, released yesterday, the association says ‘all usual risk assessments were undertaken before launching and the forecast was for a weather window providing reasonable conditions for such activity’.
Irish Sailing also says it is ‘now investigating what protocols and assessments may need to be reviewed and/or revised so that we maintain all safety standards’. Read the full statement here.
