Dublin Bay Sailing and Boating News
#DublinBay - Peggy Bawn Press publisher - and Afloat.ie Sailor of the Month for March 2012 - Hal Sisk will give a lecture tonight Thursday 3 April titled 'Dublin Bay, the Cradle of Yacht Racing' at the Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club in Ringsend. The amateur sport of sailing, as we know it, first emerged, not in Holland, not in Cowes, and not even in Cork, but right here in Dublin Bay! Earlier "yachting" episodes used entirely professional crews, and…
#DublinBay - The Irish Times reports that the first section of the long-awaited Sutton to Sandycove cycleway around Dublin Bay will begin this summer more than 10 years after plans were first set in motion. Works will soon get underway on the 2km stretch of Clontarf Road between the Bull Island causeway and the wooden bridge at the Bull Wall. A previous plan for this gap in the present cycleway from Sutton to East Point would have involved a suspended…
#INSC - Wind, wind and more wind greeted the participants in the Rathfarnham Ford Dublin Bay Spring Series at the weekend, writes Kenneth Rumball. This is by far the windiest winter I have known so far with lots of sailing cancelled.

We weren’t…

#FortyFoot - It's a big victory for women at the famous Forty Foot swimming spot in South Dublin as the adjacent - and formerly staunchly male-only - Sandycove Bathers' Association has decided to accept female members. The move follows more than a year after the club's last vote on the motion to accept women members saw it rejected by 24 to 17, as previously reported on Afloat.ie. According to The Irish Times, reform at the Sandycove club comes almost four…

#FerryportMovies– Before Stena Line's HSS operated Dun Laoghaire-Holyhead seasonal service reopens in April, the harbour's ferry terminal is to be used as a drive-in cinema on selected weekends this month, writes Jehan Ashmore. Underground Cinema in partnership with Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company will locate the drive-in cinema within the ferry terminal's vehicle compound area with spaces for 80 drive-in movie cars provided.
