Royal Irish Yacht Club Regatta Launches Dun Laoghaire Summer Sailing

#riyc – This Saturday, the Royal Irish Yacht Club (RIYC) hosts the first of the 2014 season waterfront club regattas with a two race schedule for keelboats, one designs and dinghies.

Keelboats classes will have an opportunity to practice on the newly designed ICRA Championship courses for next month's 100 plus cruiser national championships.

With an 11:25 warning signal for the first race and a second race to be completed back to back it'll be a packed day for sailors!

There is a comprehensive social programme for sailors, non-sailors and especially juniors including a creche for 1 year olds and up, an Irish National Sailing School Pirates Adventure Day for older kids and RS Fevas are very welcome in the PY fleet.

Juniors are also very welcome in the Laser fleets!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
