Although it was announced back in January that Howth Yacht Club would be the 2019 holders of the Mitsubishi Motors Sailing Club of the Year trophy for 2019 after an outstandingly successful programme throughout 2018, in time-honoured fashion it wasn’t until their new season was underway yesterday evening that the actual handover ceremony took place.

HYC Commodore Ian Byrne received the historic ship’s wheel trophy from Jason Byrne of Mitsubishi Motors in the harbour-side clubhouse last night in the presence of a distinguished gathering of sailors, Irish Sailing President Jack Roy and club officers, and many of the club’s dedicated volunteers.

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.
