No sooner has Howth Yacht Club completed its Spring Warmer Series for keelboats than it is preparing for its first dinghy event of the 2017 Summer season. HYC will host the RS Eastern Championship over the 22nd April and 23rd April.
In the run up to the championships, the RS Feva class are staging a two day training session in Howth. Training is open to all sailors around the country regardless of ability. 20 boats are expected for the Easterns and there is a lot of renewed interest in the class now from Optimist sailors looking to try a two hander.
An early bird entry discount has been extended until tomorrow (April 12), according to HYC's Ross MacDonald. Enter here.
