Dublin Bay Sigma 33s Set to Race As Part of DBSC Cruisers Two Class

Dublin Bay Sigma 33s Set to Race As Part of DBSC Cruisers Two Class

#sigma33 – The Sigma 33 Class on Dublin Bay will race in Cruisers 2 for the first time in 15 years it has been confirmed by Sigma 33 class captain Paddy Maguire.

The Sigma's will receive results in 2015 as one design, IRC and echo which will add a variety to their racing and prove a great challenge for both Sigmas and Cruisers 2 alike.

In November 2014 the Class proposed to DBSC that the Sigma 33 would race in Cruisers 2 for 2015 and this was accepted by DBSC. The reason for the change was to provide a more enjoyable and completive racing by sailing ng against more boats in a bigger fleet. The new Cruisers 2 fleet for 2015 will be one of the biggest keel boat fleets in Dun Laoghaire with approximately 25 Boats.

To compete in 2015 in the Cruisers 2 the Sigma's will have to improve their performance on the water. To this end they have developed a very attractive sailing programme for the season including a Coastal race, Ladies race and a ballet race to name but a few. The new programme of events will be launched this Friday 6th March at the National Yacht Club with a Sailing supper and talk by Prof O'Connell "HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR RESULTS BY 20% in 2015" to a full house.

One of the other big challenges is to increase the number of crew both male and female as part of the process of improving the individual boat performance.
