NYC Junior Sailing Celebrates its 50 years in style

Almost 150 supporters of sailing in the National Yacht Club got together on Saturday 30th September to mark the 50th Jubilee anniversary of NYC Junior section. Open to over 18s who have been involved in NYC’s junior section over the years as sailors, parents, friends and instructors, the evening reunited three generations to celebrate junior sailing at NYC. The evening was also an opportunity to raise funds for a fleet of Fireflies that will benefit NYC’s current young and upcoming sailors.

Lorcan Tighe is Afloat.ie “Sailor of the Month” for September

We are delighted to congratulate Lorcan Tighe on winning Afloat.ie ‘Sailor of the Month’ for September. 

Lorcan Tighe of Dun Laoghaire makes such a broadly-based contribution to Irish sailing as a sailor, an instructor and a race officer, that you’d assume he was somebody with many years of experience under his belt. But he’s only 17 – a Sixth Form schoolboy, to be precise. Yet his sailing CV is already formidable.
