Re: Result of vote on insurance

Thank you to the committee for your work, to everyone who voted and to a very thought provoking debate. Regardless of whether this was carried or defeated, I don't see it as a reason to celebrate. I am though very much looking forward to catching up with everyone on the water over the coming months ...

Re: Insurance

Very valid points Geo and thanks. If the insurances covered the items you mentioned above for only €20/€30, I see no reason why everyone would not look to have cover.

Re: Insurance

To the Committee, this morning we are receiving your emails about the insurance survey as promised.

Sat 15th Oct - Doolin

Some of the local group will meet at Doolin pier this coming Saturday at 10am. The plan is to get suited for a picture and to to present the ISKA contribution payment to Doolin Coastguard. Afterwards, we will go for a paddle along the cliffs.

All welcome and you might confirm if you are joining us.
