Women at the Helm is back! SIA Partners Irish Sailing Women at the Helm Regatta – 27th & 28th August 2022

The National Yacht Club is delighted to once again host the Women at the Helm Regatta and looks forward to a great weekend’s celebration of women’s sailing on Dublin Bay – and some great fun back on shore in the social programme.

Women at the Helm is an annual sailing regatta for dinghy and keelboat racing, where all boats are helmed (captained) by women. Now in its third year, the event will take place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August 2022 at the National Yacht Club.

Women at the Helm encourages women into positions of leadership, and to set an annual sailing goal – it may be a move from crew to helm, first time entry into a national event, or simply from a role ashore onto a boat.   The aim is for women sailors to step up, lead the way, or support others to take the helm and be the best they can be, on and off the water.

Choosing Your Route and Making Way – Friday 26th August in the NYC

Here at The National Yacht Club and Irish Sailing we’re keen to promote the different routes people take into and through our sports. There are so many ways and experiences, and no linear approach.

To hear more, we’d like to invite you to join us next Friday night (26th August) to the Sia Partners Irish Sailing Women at the Helm at The National Yacht Club. Spend the evening in the company of five incredible female sailors to share some of the highlights of their sailing journeys so far, the hurdles they faced, the support they welcomed and the goals they have set.

We welcome Joan Mulloy representing Offshore Sailing and her Vendée Globe goal, Laura Dillon sharing an insight to her Inshore Sailing experience, Diana Kissane with Team Racing, Christine Heath on Cruising Adventures and Irish Sailing Mentee Clara Fagan sharing her experience on the Women in Sailing Menteeship with Pamela Lee.

Adult Sailing – Final Course in 2022 – September

The NYC has been running Adult Sailing Courses throughout the summer, for Basic Sailing and Improving Skills, on our club J80s and taught by experienced member skippers.

It has been a joyful success for the club – c. 60 participants will have taken part, half of whom are NYC members, supported by 10 skippers.  There has been alot of learning and fun on and off the water.

Graduates receive a certificate from the NYC at the Annual Awards night at the end of the season, perhaps a stepping stone to greater things – day skipper, ICC – depending upon ambition.

The final course is in September for 4 weeks, starting 4 Sept on Sundays at 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm and there are a few slots remaining – going on a first come, first served basis.  Price for members is only 120 euro.

If you wish to take part – please sign up using this form ( by Monday 22nd.

Information on the course can be found here (

All the best,

The NYC Adult Sailing Team

Expression of interest for dinghy platform winter parking 2022 -2023

Following the last few years where many boats have either changed hands or been bought or changed their winter sailing plan, we would like to have a clearer understanding of the potential demand for Dinghy Winter Platform Parking for Junior activities and participation in the DMYC Frostbite series and therefore, in order to best plan for this winter, we invite you to complete this online Expression of interest form by clicking here at your earliest convenience, BEFORE MONDAY 22ND AUGUST.

Please note that this survey is for planning purposes only and:

  • Does not guarantee a space for storage
  • Is not the actual dinghy platform winter parking application which will be issued end of August / early September.

The Boathouse Sub-Committee would highly welcome your cooperation on this matter.
