Cruising Association Cancels its Three Bridges Liffey Cruise

7th September 2020

The Cruising Association of Ireland has cancelled its traditional end of season event in Dublin, The Three Bridges Liffey Cruise.

The name reflects that the normal cruising event involved the simultaneous lifting of all three Liffey bridges at 3 pm on a Saturday towards the end of September.

The fleet usually numbering over 40 yachts then proceed up the Liffey to the head of navigation, with full sail where possible and flags in abundance.

Covid restrictions and a sense of respect for others are the main considerations bringing about the cancellation, according to the CAI's John Leahy.

While it is a disappointment, the CAI has been running a full programme since March that included a cruise to Belfast for the first time in three years, as Afloat reported here.

The coming autumn and winter will again feature a series of CAI Zoom Tuesday Night Talks. The CAI is open to all cruising sailors whether in a yacht club or not.
