Notice to Members

As you know, the National Yacht Club is co-hosting the Laser 4.7 Youth World Championships this week, with the final day of racing on Saturday August 14th.

There will be 112 Laser’s coming ashore on the slip in the afternoon, most likely in the period 15:00 – 17:00 hrs.  This is a big logistical exercise for the Club, and the Laser’s will have priority during this period.  Any SB20, Flying 15, dinghy, or others coming ashore may experience delays.

Please show forbearance and comply with any instructions from the RIB or shore team who will be controlling access to the pond inside the Club pontoon.

Davy NYC Junior Regatta

The National Yacht Club Junior Section hosted their annual Junior Inter-club Regatta on Wednesday 14th July, sponsored by Davy. We had a beautiful sunny day with perfect wind for racing. There were 90 boats entered, with 109 sailors participating between the Harbour Fleet and the Main Fleet.

Mairéad Ní Chúlahan ran two fantastic trapezoid races for the Main Fleet of 50 boats in Scottsman’s Bay, while Ken Dumpleton ran three tremendous races for the 40 boat Harbour Fleet! We are extremely grateful to all of the volunteers that helped throughout the day, and especially Davy for their tremendous support. 

The National Yacht Club was delighted to host this regatta for its own sailors, as well as sailors from Bray Sailing Club, the DMYC, the RStGYC, and the RIYC. It was amazing seeing such excitement amongst the sailors from each club. The Regatta finished off with a prize giving, followed by a Teddy’s Ice Cream for all involved!

There is a fantastic gallery of pictures here

The Junior Section is looking forward to hosting our next Junior Regatta next summer.
