Fun Fridays Are Back At Howth Yacht Club

12th May 2019
Fun Fridays Are Back At Howth Yacht Club

The first of the season’s ‘Fun Fridays’ at Howth Yacht Club takes place this coming Friday 17 May — where the first 20 entries for junior sailors and their friends will get to spend an evening on the club’s J/80s.

Fun Fridays are back again after a successful summer last year, with HYC members getting to share their time out on the water with their families and friends.

This year’s season runs on selected Fridays up to 23 August.

With each event commencing at 6pm, there will be a broad range of activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy, ranging from supervised sailing to stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and even a ‘pirate trip’ to Ireland’s Eye for fun and games.

And the fun isn’t confined to on-the-water activities, either, as there will be food and drinks specials and children’s menus available in the bar.

Each event is open one week in advance, and booking is open online until by noon of the day of the event.

Fun Fridays are open to all HYC members (minimum age 6) and also to summer sailing course participants. A full programme is available HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
