Subaru is a quality brand and to endorse the National Yacht Club as “Vehicle partner” and for the Flying Fifteen world championship hosted by the Club allows us to share the Subaru brand definition of  “confidence in motion” as our members enjoy sailing and as we prepare for the only World sailing Championships to take place in Irish waters in 2019″

Winter Dinghy Platform Parking – Online Application Form

Application for platform parking for dinghies this winter is now online. Please use the form here to apply and pay.

Dinghies taking part in either the junior training sessions or the DMYC Frostbite racing series must complete this form prior to bringing their boats back on the platform.

Please note that platform parking DOES NOT REOPEN before Saturday 20th October as the boathouse still has to lift many keelboats on trailers and position them on the platform post our main lift-out on Saturday 13th October.

Thanking you in advance for your understanding

National Yacht Club gets Sea Bin thanks to Flossie Donnelly

National Yacht Club is Ireland’s first Club with a Sea Bin – thanks to Flossie Donnelly

Twelve-year-old environmental campaigner Flossie Donnelly has presented the National Yacht Club with one of her Sea Bin devises to help clean up the environs of the Club – and especially catch waste plastics which come in our direction when the Northerly winds blow.

The Sandycove campaigner and blogger already has a Sea Bin in operation in the main Dun Laoghaire harbour area and our one will be the second in the country. 

Flossie presented Sea Bin to Vice Commodore Martin McCarthy who accepted on behalf of the club and with the support of Annalise Murphy – who is dedicated to the “Turn the Tide on Plastic” campaign, and whose boat she campaigned in the recent Volvo Ocean Race.
