We have seen the population of yawls rise from 3 just a few years ago to 13 this year. We intend to build on this great yawl revival. Cumann Badoiri Acla have identified a number of objectives including the holding of an annual yawl racing festival through the medium of Irish. We know of no more exciting sport than yawl racing and we know that everyone will enjoy the spectacle of so many fine boats battling it out to be first to the finishing line.
