Many club members may have been involved with Asgard, Creidne or Asgard II over the years. Sail Training Ireland is Ireland’s National Sail Training Organisation. It is a charity set up by some of the former board members of the much lamented Coiste an Asgard. Since 2012, they have placed 1,600 trainees aboard training vessels from Ireland and the rest of Europe.
It is ten years since the loss of Asgard II in the Bay of Biscay and to mark this and increase the profile of the work they do, they are organising a voyage and ball in May 2018. Sail Training Ireland are trying to reach as many of the “alumni” as possible but as you can imagine since 1981 these are now spread far and wide and contact details are out of date. Below are details of the Ball to be held in teh Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire on 19th May next. For more details log on to www.sailtrainingireland.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
