Howth Yacht Club Sign Up New Lambay Race Sponsor

27th April 2015
Howth Yacht Club Sign Up New Lambay Race Sponsor

#hyc – With a little more than six weeks to go before the longstanding annual keelboat regatta, Howth Yacht Club has announced Davy Group as sponsors of the event. The Lambay Races affords skippers and crew of cruisers and one-design keelboats the opportunity of competing in a 'testing' coastal yacht race which is traditionally run on the Saturday after the June Bank Holiday, meaning that the event will be run on June 6th this year.

Davy Private Clients' Graham Cawley said of the announcement: 'Davy has been working withclients since 1926 helping them to plan for the future and navigate markets whatever the conditions. We are delighted to support Howth Yacht Club and to be associated with the Lambay Races - a long standing, much loved regatta, revered by sailors up and down the coast.'

In addition to the 5 cruiser classes and 6 one-design classes competing, event organiser James Markey has also included a traditional course for the 'Old Gaffers', following their successful and most welcome inclusion last year. However, brown sails and the smell of turf won't distract from the serious racing business within all of the classes, after which the infamous party will commence ashore.
