The National Yacht Club Women on the Water team continues to grow in numbers with up to 30 lady sailors now sailing weeklyin DBSC Racing on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This enthusiastic group entered two 1720 Sportsboats in last weekend’s club regatta with an all ladies crew. It was a glorious day of sunshine with two windward/leeward races providing lots of challenging sailing.

The NYC awarded a Women’s Boat prize in recognition of the many new and returning ladies to sailing in the club. This was jointly won by one of our 1720s helmed by Fiona Staunton and an SB20 sailed by Sarah Byrne from Greystones.
