Sutton Dinghy Club’s end-of-season prize-giving this coming Sunday 15 December from 3.30pm is also an opportunity to welcome new Commodore Ian McCormack and Vice-Commodore Ciara O’Tiarnaigh, who were elected at the club’s AGM on Monday night.

With the recent news of some funding for clubhouse upgrades from the Sports Capital Programme, the club with Ian and Ciara at the helm “will be pushing on with some exciting developments”, it says.

Despite poor club racing last season, impacted by the weather as well as restrictions on Dublin Bay, the treasurer reported a stable and well-managed financial position on Monday night.

Allied to increased participation of Sutton’s junior and senior sailors at Class and Open events; a small but significant increase in membership; and great turn-outs for Open and members’ sailing courses, the club says this augurs well for next season — which will feature a visit to the Royal Cork Yacht Club on 25 April as part of its 300th anniversary celebrations.
