J24 Europeans 2011 Preview

September 09th - 15th 2011. Hot on the heels of running the Etchells Worlds this year, Howth Yacht Club is already well advanced in its planning for the 2011 European Championship of the J/24 Class.

With over 5,000 boats in 27 countries, the J/24 is the world's most popular one-design keelboat and has attracted many of the sport's top talent since it was first designed over three decades ago.

A fleet of up to 50 boats from eight to 10 European countries is expected in Howth for the event, being staged between September 9th and 15th next year. The organising committee is chaired by former HYC Commodore Derek Bothwell and ISAF International Race Officer David Lovegrove is the PRO.

A large Irish representation will also feature at Howth, with a number of well-known sailors in other classes already expressing an interest in competing. The Europeans will also be one of six qualifying events for the 2013 Worlds being hosted by Howth, as decided by the Irish J/24 Class Association at its recent AGM.

A new building has appeared overnight beside Howth Yacht Club during the Christmas period, and a row is simmering as to whether it has full planning permission. Sailors Declan MacManus and Robert Kerley, leaders of the construction team, anticipate receiving full retrospective planning permits. In fact, they hope that it will soon become a listed building, as it is a cool re-creation of the famous monastic beehive cells on Skellig Michael, and is also an important interpretation of the classic Inuit vernacular style traditional to Arctic regions.

With Ireland now expected to enter a new mini-Ice Age by 2035, they also anticipate that the Government's Emergency Response Committee will wish to retain them as consultants for future building projects. The new house is tastefully if sparsely furnished with IKEA's Fishbox Range, which is being introduced for 2011. It provides an unusual and comfortable venue to add to Howth's many bustling hospitality hotspots.

A representative of the local planning authority has reportedly said that they are putting the matter of planning permission on ice until after the holidays, and they expect that in due course the matter will simply melt away to provide an Irish solution to an Irish problem.

A Northside versus Southside battle between two top chefs and a Guinness Book of Records attempt are the attractions at a Celebrity Chef Cook-Off Competition to be held in Howth Yacht Club on December 2nd in aid of the ‘Suicide Or Survive’ (SOS) charity.

One of the best known chefs on the northside, Terry McCoy of the Red Bank Restaurant, Skerries, fame, (and a Howth Yacht Club member) goes head-to-head with Dermot Baker of the National Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire, a noted gourmet chef who previously ran the successful Vino Bistro in Glasthule.

The two men will pit their culinary skills against one another to impress a panel of three independent judges, following which they will attempt to make it into the Guinness Book of Records by feathering, cooking and plating a pheasant in 180 seconds.

Tickets cost €25 and the entertaining night includes wine and nibbles and music from the band ‘Diablo’, with the proceeds going to the suicide prevention charity ‘Suicide Or Survive’. Tickets are available from Cathy Flynn Byrne (Northside) 087-279 0601 and Jack Shanahan (Southside) 086-262 9936.

Howth Yacht Club is staging a lunch to help Round the World skipper Joe English who has been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease according to a note on the club website.

Coming from a career in sailing that started in 1976 in North Sails' Kinsale loft, Joe is probably best known for his role as Skipper of NCB, the Irish maxi yacht which competed in the 1989 Volvo Ocean Race.

He also took over as Skipper of Toshiba in the 1997 race. More locally, Joe was an innovator in the Cork 1720 project in conjunction with Tony Castro.

In recent years, Joe has been diagnosed with Alzheimer disease at a very young age and recently featured in a Prime Time documentary on RTE on the subject. A charitable trust has been launched to help Joe and his family over the coming years and this year's HYC Christmas lunch is to benefit this worthy cause.

The lunch is on Friday, 10th December
