Important Notice For All Members

Your Committee, in consultation with the manager, have taken the decision to increase bar and catering prices across the board by 10%, this was approved at the AGM in March.


That’s correct, members will not pay this increase if they use their membership cards.  Simply put, when you use your card to top up, the Club will give you an extra 10% on your top up.

Top up your card by 100.00 euros, you get 110.00 euros on your card!

In other words, the price of everything in the Club will not change for those using their cards and keep them topped up.  This is really a way of putting the price up for non-member business to the Club.  This move is important to maintain a profit margin to sustain the Club into the future.

If any member has a query or question about this new system, please call Tim on 01 280 5725 or email or the Honorary Secretary at 

Irish Sailing Set–Up ‘Performance HQ’ at Commissioners of Irish Lights, Dun Laoghaire Harbour

The National Yacht Club has long been the Dublin’s guest home of Irish Sailing Performance Squads (49ers, Lasers) to provide access to the water in the capital…

Red Bull Flugtag 2018 Dun Laoghaire – Sunday 20th May

Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot homemade flying machines off a 6-metre high flight deck, in the hope of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or more often, to plunge into the waters below. Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. These criteria have inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks!

In 2011, Dublin celebrated the momentous 100th anniversary of the Red Bull Flugtag series and we are bringing back the madness to the capital in May 2018. So mark your calendar and be ready for more flights, fun and foolery!

Clubhouse / Social Information:
Come and enjoy the spectacle from your Club’s best vantage point! The BBQ will be in full swing from 1pm to 5pm and live music and kids entertainment as well!! All members, family friends welcome but Security will be on the door and gates so make sure you have you membership card for speedy entry!!

Please note there will be no parking outside the clubhouse from 6pm on Saturday night.

For further details on the event, including road closures, parking and public transport, refer to the official Flug Tag Event Guide HERE

On the water:
There will be an exclusion zone in the Carlisle Basin with 2 patrol RIBs from the Club to help channel the traffic…please follow their instructions at all time. Also, please do not bring your boat alongside the pontoons as masts or high cabins will inevitably impede the view of the show!
The Club launch service is not affected by the Flug Tag…however, there will be no renting of Club boats this weekend as they will be off site in storage to make room for tables and chairs.
