The Sailing In Dublin (SID) Club AGM was held in the National Yacht Club on Thursday 7th April. There were presentations from the Club Chairperson Aine Kennedy and other club officers covering last year’s activities and plans for 2016. 

In 2015 the Club saw the successful introduction of a new cruising yacht “Silver Wind” a Sun Odyssey-35. Silver Wind cruised to the South West coast last year and accommodated many members on week long cruises over a 10 week period. The Club Sigma 33 “Obsession” took part in ISORA races and the popular DBSC Turkey shoot and Spring Chicken racing series and also other leisurely sailing in Dublin Bay and beyond. The Club’s Ruffian 23 “Ruff Diamond” took part in DBSC racing and regattas.

The Club also has an active fleet of Vago dinghies which competed in DBSC racing, in the DMYC frostbite and dinghy cruises. Plans for 2016 include purchase of new equipment, increased participation of new and existing members in Dinghy, Cruising, Racing and training activities including a leisurely 14 week circumnavigation cruise around Ireland on the club yacht "Silver Wind" and continued participation in ISORA and DBSC racing.

Sailing In Dublin Club is based in Dun Laoghaire and provides a fleet or yachts and dinghies for adult members of all levels to take part in regular sailing activities.
