The DMYC has announced its annual Viking Marine Dun Laoghaire Harbour Frostbite Series next month and already reached 75 out of a capped potential of 130 entries.

"The “real” sailing season is scheduled to commence on 6th November next, running through the coldest months until March 2023 with a week off for Christmas thanks to the generous sponsorship from our local chandlery, and kind permission of the Harbour Master", DMYC's Neil Colin told Afloat.

The format will follow the recent successful years, aiming to run at least two triangles or windward-leeward races in the harbour, starting at 2 pm, for all centre board dinghies, and potentially Kona boards.

Of entries received so far, the ICLA 6 (Radial) has already registered 29 entrants, and the Fireballs and RSAero are also registering a healthy entry.

This year will see the reintroduction of daily “mug” prizes for each class. Winners have to be present to collect their mug or wait until they are next entitled to win.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie 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.

Afloat.ie 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.
