Welcome to the Irish Laser Association website.  Anyone may read the information in almost all of the website but only members can post “Buy & Sell” advertisements and enter events.

You can access the Members Area if you are a 2018 ILA Member.  The membership for 2019 will be €30 (with additional sailors in the family costing €20 each).  The membership year is 1st January to the 31st December 2019.  These changes were agreed at the AGM held on 24th August 2018.  You will need to renew your membership to access your account to enter events/post on “buy and sell”.

You will be prompted to renew when you input your log in details.  A receipt will be sent to your email account.  You do not need to have a PayPal account to enter – just a credit/debit card.   

You will only have to enter your information once and verify it before entering each event (please ensure you update if you are changing rigs/changed boats etc). You can also post, edit and delete your “Buy and Sell” advertisements. 

Membership for 2018 is €15 payable at the end of the registration process via Paypal. Sailors intending to travel outside Ireland should ensure that they take their current Membership card with them.  If you wish to obtain your card please contact the Membership Secretary directly who will be happy to assist you.  In case of difficulty you should seek a membership verification letter from secretary@laser-ireland.com. You must be a current member of the Irish Laser Association to enter Regional/National events.

Any problems please email laserirelandwebmaster@gmail.com.
