NYC Aims For World Record Pontoon Splash This Weekend

#NYC - The National Yacht Club is hosting a world record attempt Pontoon 50 Splash as part of its Junior Section Golden Jubilee celebrations this weekend.

All NYC members aged “from five to 105” are invited to join in the fun as the club aims to set a new world record for the greatest number of people in a pontoon jump.

Wetsuits are optional but lifejackets are compulsory for the pontoon splash set for this Sunday 2 July at 1.45pm. Contact Brendan O’Connor at [email protected] for more information.

The NYC will also host a family flotilla to Dalkey Island as part of its events to mark 50 years of the club’s Junior Section this weekend, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.

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.
