Help RNLI Yacht Sailing Research

Lifesaving charity the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has commissioned Substance to undertake new research with yacht sailors in Ireland. This is to understand their approach to yacht sailing and their approach to safety. The research is in partnership with the Irish Sailing Association and supported by a range of other organisations including the Cruising Association of Ireland and the Irish Cruising Club.

The survey remains open until April 30th and it is important that as many sailors in Ireland as possible take part.

Thanks again for your support.
