SB3s in the City

10th June 2009

ImageIt's an urban affair for Dublin's SB3 class this Friday as they head into the inner city for some wall-to-wall action. Nine SB3s will head upstream for four hours of solid racing on the Liffey in the shadows of the IFSC and in sight of the new Samuel Beckett bridge for the Liffey Challenge Series.

Racing is taking place 1100-1500 hrs and the forecast is for 10 knots S/SE and sunny.

Although Tom Fitzpatrick won't be avaialble to defend his title, the likes of Cathy MacAleavey and Aidan O'Connell.  will be on hand to challenge  for the trophy.
The bridge lifts at 10.30, and the event is hosted by the Royal Alfred Yacht Club and Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club jointly. Team
