The National – Chronicles of a Dun Laoghaire Yacht Club

This engaging work by long time Member Donal O’Sullivan describes how the National Yacht Club developed, from its beginnings as a rowing club, comfortably set down in the northeast corner of Dún Laoghaire Harbour, how it nearly went under on a couple of occasions, how it was threatened with forced migration to a less salubrious part of the Dún Laoghaire Harbour and how it grew into one of the finest yacht clubs in Dublin.

What is presented here is not only a narrative of the club’s evolution by way of specific events, but a celebration of some of the wonderful people who featured in the club’s history, stories about colourful members who gave the club a perceptible quality which might be thought characteristic of the National Yacht Club – a certain singularity, a disinclination perhaps to be too predictable or over respectful to convention or the accepted way of doing things.

As the Commodore, Martin McCarthy, notes in the Foreword, ‘As temporary custodians of the club, this history reminds us of how the many previous Commodores, Flag Officers and members adapted their policies and operations to meet the ever-changing requirements of Dublin and Ireland’s sailing fraternity….’ Published to mark the sesquicentennial anniversary of the National Yacht Club.
