NYC Boathouse takes delivery of 9 sea-kayaks

Following the very positive feedback and great usage of the Club’s paddle-boards, the N.Y.C., thanks to the support of the Sport Capital Grant 2015 programme, has decided to carry-on diversifying its water sports activities and has just taken delivery of 9 RTM Ocean Duo sea-kayaks. The RTM Ocean Duos can easily take 2 adults or even 3 people “on deck” with a child in the middle or 3 teenagers…

Replacement launch on its way to Ireland

Following the sad loss of the Club’s launch “Alva”, an extensive search to find a suitable replacement (new or second-hand) was carried out.

We are happy to announce that a French built craft (by Ordoqui Socoa boatyard in South West France) is just on its way from to enter a refit programme in Malahide Boatyard and Marina.

Boathouse Closes over Festive Season

The Club Boathouse will be open until Sunday 20th December inclusive (until 1700) to facilitate 2 lifts post Turkey Shoot. It will then be closed until Monday 4th January.

The boathouse staff would like to wish all the Club’s members, their friends and family, a Very Happy Christmas and all the very best for the 2016 sailing season!

Launch ‘Josephine’ gets a new engine

A lot is happening in the boathouse this winter; following the tragic theft and loss of ‘Alva’, a suitable replacement is currently being sourced to second the Club’s current sole launch ‘Josephine’.

Meanwhile, ‘Josephine’ is being fitted with a new Yanmar 30bhp engine as her 12 years old Beta diesel engine had done its time and started to show serious signs of wear and tear.

Rent a Club boat

Want to go sailing but have no boat? Want to helm? A selection of Club boats is now available for chartering to sailing members.

Fastest lift-in ever…

A highly efficient team doing a good job at the NYC lift-in last Saturday…

Well not That fast but a nice time lapse video all the same with 3.5 hours work squeezed in just under 3 minutes video. Thank to NYC member Declan Tonge for setting it up.
