The next event on the circuit for the RS fleet is the Waterways Ireland Inland championships, being hosted by Lough Ree Yacht Club, on 23rd and 24th of July, All three fleets will be taking part in what was one of the highlights of the 2014 season, with lots of new comers to the fleet in both the 200s and 400s at their respective Westerns and Southerns event end of June, there should be tight racing across the board. This event will be a great one, with ample camping facilities on site.

This will be the last regional event before the fleets head for Schull for the National championships end of August.

The next RS Feva event is the Westerns in Galway next weekend – July 9th/10th as part of GBSCs DinghyWest. 

The highlight of the year for the Fevas will be Feva Nationals, hosted by Greystones Sailing Club, making use of their fantastic new clubhouse and facilities. There are 10 races planned over the 3 days, and lots of social activities too. For the first time, the RS Feva class are taking a new approach to their Nationals, it will be held during the week from Mon 18th til Wed 20th of July. 

All those who take part will be entered into a draw for a brand new Feva race jib, kindly donated by sponsors, McCready Sailboats. There will also be a separate prize for the first non XL (racing) sail – so even if you are sailing a club boat with training sails there will be good racing for you too. We are also hoping to get some parent and child teams competing – we have two potentially signed up already, and if we get 3 parent/child teams we will have a prize for that category. So….beg/steal/borrow a Feva/child and come and join in!!!

The Feva class will also be joining the 4s and 2s in Lough Ree for the Inlands on July 23rd/24th.
