1720 Racing Youth Squad

The National Yacht Club is entering one of its 1720s in the DBSC Mixed Sportboat Class series as a development path from dinghy to keelboat racing for our young talents.

This is a fun race and the emphasis is on participation and having a good time! Places are limited to 5 crew (the skipper is appointed by the Club for each race) on a first come first served basis so book fast…

Fancy racing a Club Wayfarer in DBSC? Expressions of interest sought!

Do you fancy representing the National Yacht Club Burgee in the Dublin Bay’s PY (handicap) Dinghy Class?

The NYC is considering the option of entering 2 of its new Wayfarers in DBSC for dinghy racing on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to race a brain new boat with a winning track record under PY!!!
