2020 marks the 125th anniversary of organised sailing in Howth and to mark the occasion, Howth Yacht Club is publishing a book that looks back on the memorable events from HYC’s history.
Work is in progress and the aim is to publish before the end of the year. The club is seeking “war stories” or other club memories for inclusion. HYC is particularly interested in noteworthy cruises and offshore events. Pictures are also very welcome. More details on the HYC website here.
Across Dublin Bay in Dun Laoghaire Harbour, the National Yacht Club, with reciprocal links to HYC, marks its 150th anniversary with a book by Bay sailing historian Donal O'Sullivan, also to be published later this year.
