The Royal Air Force Red Arrows display team will fly over Bray in County Wicklow this summer. The renowned aerobatics team will participate in the Bray Air Display on Sunday, July 24.

The free show attracts over 100,000 people to the town each year and is popular with the east coast boaters who get a unique vantage point afloat off the Bray coast. It is expected to be larger than ever this year, and, as always, a great family day out. Boats are welcome to attend the event and event organiser Se Pardy has been in touch with Afloat to asking skippers attending the display to remain 230 metres from the display line as illustrated above.

This is the first time that the famous Bray event will be held over two days starting on Saturday, July 23rd.

The Bray Air Display is run by Bray Summerfest with the endorsement of Wicklow County Council. The IAA is a sponsor of the event. Performers include aerobatic display experts from Ireland, the United Kingdom and Europe.

As well as attractions in the air, visitors will be able to enjoy static aircraft displays on the ground and interact with pilots and crew members over the weekend of July 23 and 24.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
