NYC Fevas – Sailing in September

The Feva Class have three exciting opportunities to close out the summer.

Training and or Sailing with our own expert two handed instructors and assistants, around a trapezoid course and with the other waterfront clubs – fun based and for learning.  Sundays 4th, 11th, 25th September & 2nd October.  9.30-12.30 (on training course 10-12).  Max entry 10 boats.  Please click here for entry (€80 pp) and boat charter (€50 pp)

Our own fun racing series – always enjoyed, always successful.  Sundays 4th, 11th, 25th September.  First gun usually 13.55.  Click here for NOR and entry and boat charter options available on the form.

  1. NYC Eastern Championships 17th/18th September

An event for all boats of all standards – and three fleets, Gold, Silver and Bronze, so prizes for many!  We learnt from the Nationals that nothing beats the camaraderie and learning in an event of 20+ boats.  Click here for NOR, entry and event info (usually 75 euro per boat).
You can charter a Club Feva for the East Coast Championships separately using the form here (cost = €60 per boat for the event) – Make sure to check availability prior to enter the event and to take note of the sail number from the charter form as you will need it to enter the boat in the East Coast Championships.

If your sailors do one or all these events, they will have fun, be better sailors, love sailing more and be ready for a winter off for spring next year – weather permitting!

IODAI Optimist National Championships report

IODAI Optimist Nationals and Open took place from August 11-14th in the Royal St. George Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire. Although the weather was perfect for visiting families and on-shore volunteers with sunny skies and high temperatures, there were challenging conditions on the water with little or no wind and lots of tide, resulting in very long days for sailors and support coaches and volunteers. 

34 Sailors from Team GB travelled with their families and along with all participants and guests enjoyed super Irish hospitality from our hosts at RStGYC, led by Brendan Foley and and a team of 120 volunteers including IODAI committee members.  

In total 25 Optimist Sailors participated from the National Yacht Club, 8 in Senior Main Fleet, 4 in Junior Main Fleet, 6 in Regatta Racing Fleet and 7 in Regatta Coaching – a new fleet added this year, and mirroring other international competitions.
