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.

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.
