The Dun Laoghaire Glen class held their annual dinner and prize giving in the newly refurbished dining room of the Royal St George Yacht Club last Saturday. Once again Richard O'Connor’s Glenluce was the outstanding trophy winner for the season.

The well attended event was treated to a showing of a new video featuring highlights of the 2016 season (below). Made over the course of the year by Ki Duong, one of the regular Glen sailors, it features amusing footage of the Glens celebrating Bloomsday.

This is the sixth Glen video which Ki has posted to YouTube. It is wonderful to have this record of Dun Laoghaire’s legacy fleet available on line.

The Glen Class, under Class Captain Pete Hogan, are in rude good health going into the 2017 season with the newly restored Glenmarissa set to re-join the fleet.
