NYC’s Junior Section Celebrates Golden Jubilee This Month

#NYC - The National Yacht Club’s youth sailing section marks its golden jubilee with a weekend of celebration on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May.

Festivities kick off on the Saturday evening with a reunion dinner (€35pp) for those who were members of the Junior Section in its first five years between 1967 and 1972.

If you were a member of the Junior Section during these years, please send your contact details to [email protected] – the club would love you to attend the festivities, which promise to be a happy trip down memory lane.

On Sunday there will be a family fun day with a number of sailing races held in front of the clubhouse, featuring past and present junior parents, members, and organisers.

As well as sailing, there will be a BBQ and plenty of fun activities ashore – a day for all NYC members and families to enjoy.

Registration for the Sunday fun racing is available on the NYC website HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

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.

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.
