Life Is But A Dream



This Summer.

At the watersports and activity centre Oysterhaven in Kinsale, Co Cork.

Safe Haven Ireland and Welcome Wave launched the first year of their five-year instructor incubator project for children living in direct provision.

Today, Safe Haven Ireland writez:

“A few snaps of our trainees (taken and shared with permission) in full swing in their sailing courses.”

The aim is that some of the initial group of young sailors will progress to instructor level.

In fairness.

Children leave direct provision behind to make waves sailing (Liz Dunphy, Irish Examiner)

    Great idea. The main benefit is probably the great joy kids get from water. If some get some kind of work or set up their own kayaking company in later years then that’s an added bonus.
    I was in a kayak for the first time last week – City Kayaking have 2 hours kayaking on the Liffey for €25. It was interesting to see under the bridges and get a different view of the city. Also a good way to support a business that is heavily dependent on scarce tourists.
    As someone who had a bit of an incident in a canoe years ago (I would not be keen to let my kids in a canoe) the kayak was far more stable and there is no risk of getting trapped in it if you did happen to capsize.
