National Yacht Club Ladies sailing

Ladies Sailing spent a very enjoyable evening in the Clubhouse following the AIB End of Summer NYC members Race with three boats accepting prizes in yet another heavy weather challenging race.

It was a celebration of an active sailing season with ladies involved across many fleets J80, SB20, Ruffian, Flying Fifteen, Shipman, Cruisers, Fireball, Wayfarer, Laser and other classes.

We saw ladies new to sailing joining the Adult Sailing courses, many others returning after a few too many years gap due to career or family commitments.

Winter is fast approaching however we will continue as we have the Turkey Shoot and Frostbites to look forward to.  Onshore we are planning Navigation and chartwork etc information evenings, Pilates, Racing Theory, Racing Rules, and essential Social activities !!  If you would like to join us either onshore or off, contact Rosemary via

Update on the Pathfinder Women at the Helm


Susan Spain and her Organising Committee ran a highly successful Irish Sailing Pathfinder “Women at the Helm” Regatta at the National Yacht Club at the weekend, which featured 61 boats and 200 sailors from around the country.

The event was the first of its type in Ireland – run under the auspices of Irish Sailing and its President, our own Jack Roy, with the purpose of encouraging women to take the helm.

FF South Coast Championships – Regatta Report

Exhilarating, challenging, breezy, competitive!

The Irish Flying Fifteen fleet had their last provincial event, the South Coast Championships, last weekend before the Subaru sponsored World Championships are hosted by the National Yacht Club at the end of this month. This time the host was the near neighbours of the NYC, the Royal St George Yacht Club and there was some debate as to whether the RStGYC had ever hosted a Flying Fifteen event before. From early in the week before there was speculation as to what might happen on the Saturday as there was such an adverse forecast and in other regatta reports on the Y&Y website, the sense that not much would happen was replicated. By Friday evening the forecast had moderated slightly but winds of mid-twenties gusting to over thirty were still showing up on the XCWeather chart and other web-based forecasts weren’t any more optimistic.
