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

You can access the Members Area if you are current ILA Member.  The current membership cost is €30 (with additional sailors in the family costing €20 each).  The membership year runs from 1st January to the 31st of December.  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 login 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. 

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 [email protected]. You must be a current member of the Irish Laser Association to enter Regional/National events.

Any problems please email [email protected].
