Howth Hosts Moths For 2013 Irish Open Next Weekend

#Moths - If you enjoyed all the action of the America’s Cup recently, you'll be sure to love watching the Moths racing in Howth for the 2013 Irish Open next weekend.

Howth Yacht Club will play host to the event on 2-3 November for the international Moths, foiling single-handed boats that are very fast and incredibly exciting to sail - and to watch!

Spectator boats will be available on both days of the event, and the organisers will do their best to facilitate anyone interested in being on board - contact Laura Dillon at [email protected] indicating which day you would prefer to watch.

Organisers are also hoping to have some video footage playing in the bar on Saturday evening after the day's racing, and all are welcome to attend.

In addition, organisers are looking for a number of yachts, motor boats and RIBs to take some spectators out - anyone willing to volunteer should contact Laura Dillon via the email address above as soon as possible.

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.
