The third annual event in recent years, representing the revival of Ireland's first international class of dinghy, the International 12 and DBSC 12, will be held at the Royal St. George Yacht Club on September 10th 2017.

Designed in 1912–despite appearing to be relatively slow or old fashioned, the class is organised by a very enthusiastic group of boat owners.

Large fleets were once located in Baltimore, Cork Harbour, Howth, Sutton, Dublin Bay and other Irish sailing venues.

'We are still trying to find the boats which might be hiding in sheds and garages around the country', says class activist, the RStGYC–based, Vincent Delany.
