June is Dun Laoghaire Waterfront Regatta season for the town's four yacht clubs and the DMYC, who is first up, has launched its regatta with the opening of an online entry system.
The DMYC, based at the town's West Pier, is building on their alternative race format, pioneered two years ago, with a coastal race for yachts and cruisers and a combination of pursuit race and handicap races for dinghies based on the PY handicap system, culminating with a “King of the Bay” award to the best yacht on the day.
Organiser Neil Colin says the DMYC are keen to encourage all and any craft to take part in the day, racers and non-racers, both from the local clubs and from further afield, as the event is classed as “Open”. The club can facilitate some temporary moorings for visiting yachts.
