The National Yacht Club’s Under 25 and Under 30 sections are delighted to announce the second in a series of webinars to round out 2020. After the hugely successful match racing webinar, we now move offshore!   
The Nationals very own Tom Dolan (most famously known for his 5th place finish in the 2020 Solitaire du Figaro) will be joining us for an hour of questions so we can get to know more about him and life as a solo offshore sailor. 
This webinar will focus on gaining an insight into solo offshore life, Toms do’s and don’ts when offshore, as well as his thoughts on the future of short handed sailing in Ireland.   
Webinar is open to all and make sure you come with any questions you may have!  Zoom details:

Fergal Keane, RTÉ to host live chat with top professional sailors
Tom Dolan
– Annalise Murphy
– Damian Foxall
– Dr. Kate Kirby (top sports psychologist)

Sports psychology has traditionally been viewed as only having application to high performance or professional sports.  However, many of the techniques in sport psychology have just as much relevance for recreational athletes and also can be applied to our personal and professional lives.  We will hear from these professional sailors about their approach to sport psychology and how resilience forms an essential part of this.

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 31st 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 24th October.

Thanking you in advance for your understanding
