Royal St George Yacht Club to Host ILCA/Laser Ireland End of Season Event

Laser/ILCA Ireland has announced that their End of Season 2022 regatta will be hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire this September 24-25.

The two-day end-of-season event is the final Laser class ranking event in the 2022 calendar for ILCA Ireland. This event was introduced in 2021 as an exceptional event outside of the regional and national calendar. Last year’s event in Kinsale proved so popular that the association has decided to make it a standard part of the annual event series.

As with all other regional and national events in 2022, ILCA Ireland sailors between the ages of 18 - 30 can participate in this event for free. This initiative is aimed at encouraging young adult Laser sailors who might otherwise take a break from sailing to stay connected with the class. It has been a very welcome initiative throughout the season, with higher numbers of younger adults competing.

This will be the second regional ILCA Ireland event hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club in 2022.

Fleet to support local Laser sailor 

The fleet is making the return to the club in support of a local Laser sailor Kevin Doyle who sustained injuries during a regatta earlier in the season. ILCA Ireland and The Royal St. George Yacht are raising funds for Kevin and his family for his care.

Proceeds from the event will be placed in a fund to support Kevin's care needs over the coming months. The club has established a GoFundMe page where people can make contributions.

Early bird entry for the event closes on Friday, September 16, with late entry closing on Wednesday, September 21.

Further details of the event are available on the ILCA Ireland website and the Royal St. George Yacht Club website.
