#Flugtag - The long-awaited return of the Red Bull Flugtag to Dun Laoghaire Harbour is just two days away.
As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the event this Sunday 20 May will see over 50 teams attempt to push the limits of human flight as they launch their handcrafted flying machines in front of over 40,000 spectators.
The National Yacht Club invites its members to enjoy the spectacle “from your club’s best vantage point” with a barbecue as well as live music and entertainment from 1pm to 5pm.
Members should also be aware that there will be an exclusion zone in the Carlisle Basin with two patrol RIBs from the club to help channel the traffic.
It is also advised not bring your boat alongside the pontoons, as masts or high cabins would impede the view of the show.
The NYC’s launch service is not affected by the Flugtag, but there will be no renting of club boats this weekend.
For further details on the event, including road closures, parking and public transport, see the official Red Bull Flugtag event guide.
