North Sails Ireland Sponsors J/109 Nationals on Dublin Bay

15th September 2021
North Sails Ireland will be on the water for the J109 Nationals Credit: Afloat

North Sails Ireland is again sponsoring the J/109 Nationals this year.

The event will be hosted by the Royal Irish Yacht Club and in talking to event organiser Damien Quinn from "Jalapeno", it is hoped that 12 boats will be competing this weekend.

That's TWELVE 35 foot one-designs racing windward leewards which is TREMENDOUS to see.

It is also wonderful to see the two Cork J109's "Artful Dodger" and "Jelly Baby" remain in Dublin after the ICRA's two weeks ago - fair play guys! You'll have to hurry back down for the RCYC Autumn League the following weekend!

12 J/109s will compete for National Honours at the North SAils sponsored National Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht clubUp to 12 J/109s will compete for National Honours at the North Sails sponsored National Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht club

In addition to some lovely NS goodies for prizes, we will be providing on-the-water event support on Sat. I will be in the RIYC RIB with my video camera shooting the action. We will then de-brief it all in the wet bar in the Royal Irish on the big screen.

There might just be a few giveaways for those of you who execute a memorable (maybe for not the right reasons) manoeuvre!

DBSC supremo Eddie Totterdell and his team will be running the racing so the fleet will be in good hands.

Here at North Sails, we are delighted to support such a fantastic event.

Fingers crossed we get some wind!

Prof.

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.
