Supported by Dublin Port and Dublin City Council, the event will see all three Liffey spans east of the Talbot Memorial Bridge — namely the Sean O’Casey, Samuel Beckett and East-Link — lift at 3pm on Saturday for the 30 or more yachts to sail upriver as far as the Custom House.
After a circuit of the Liffey, the boats will berth at the Dublin Port pontoon, near Point Village, which has been extended to 200 meters to accommodate the rally. The port will also host a Commodore’s reception with fine dining and entertainment that evening.
However, cruisers shouldn’t party too hard, as lines will slip early on Sunday at 11am when the East Link opens to let the passenger ship St Brigid into Dublin Bay.
This summer the CAI — a group of more than 120 cruising sailors who organise events and support each other’s adventures — conducted rallies to the Clyde in Scotland, Malahide and Greystones, and some yachts have spent a month or more cruising extensively. For more visit www.cruising.ie.
