Club racers are reminded that boats sailed on Thursdays and Saturdays can now also sail on Tuesdays with the same format.
Tuesday racing is from Committee vessel(s) as the West Pier starter’s hut has not been installed, due to the difficulty of maintaining the current coronavirus safety rules.
The 'Dun Laoghaire Combined Clubs Solidarity Regatta 2020' is an initiative of all five of Dun Laoghaire's yacht clubs as a response to the COVID-19 interrupted season.
We plan to run this regatta from Friday 31st July to the 3rd August.
In these uncertain times, the clubs have also decided to 'book' the weekend of the 5th/6th September as reserve dates if the August dates fall through.
More details as we have them.

#DUBLIN BAY – Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) Racing yachts have been asked by race organisers to give a marine data buoy stationed in Scotsman's Bay (Latitude: 53 17.51 N Longitude 006 07.00) a wide berth even though it may be on some DBSC race courses this season.
The buoy carries a lot of expensive research equipment and It's on the periphery of the Red fleet's Thursday courses and also the dinghy Tuesday evening courses.
A combined fleet of 300 boats race under the DBSC burgee on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays making the yachts the biggest leisure users of bay waters.
Competing boats might possibly meet the yellow buoy if on a port-hand tack when sailing a beat from 40 ft. mark to Bay Mark and vice versa.
