#HYC - Howth Yacht Club's new year gets off to a brisk start with the New Year's Day Brass Monkey Race & Raffle.

HYC promises a fun day out for all the family on Thursday 1 January, with the race starting at 11.30am and food and festivities - plus the raffle in aid of Howth RNLI - in the clubhouse afterwards.

And as a reminder of the day's fundraising efforts, Howth's all-weather lifeboat Roy Barker III will be out on exercise around the harbour.

More details are available from the HYC website HERE.
