Dublin Bay Sailing Club's 2016 end of season race, an important occasion in the Club’s racing calendar, has been rescheduled to this Wednesday (August 24th) to allow Dublin Bay sailors participate in Annalise Murphy's special homecoming reception at the People's Park in Dun Laoghaire.
The Dublin Bay sailor won an Olympic silver medal in Rio 2016 in the Laser Radial class and will be welcomed back to the borough on Thursday evening from 6pm.
DBSC Commodore Chris Moore says he wants to give members the chance to 'participate in this remarkable tribute to this illustrious member of the Dublin Bay sailing community'.
The Water Wags, who race each Wednesday in the harbour have asked boats transiting the harbour to respect the Wag race. 'Please ask yachts under power to avoid creating excessive washes', a Wag spokesman said.
