National Yacht Club's Junior Regatta Held in Gusty Conditions

22nd July 2017
Sailors gather for the briefing for the NYC Junior Regatta Sailors gather for the briefing for the NYC Junior Regatta

The skies were grey but this didn’t deter the keen young sailors who participated in the Davy National Yacht Club Junior Regatta last Wednesday writes Frieda Ford. With over 110 participants there was a buzz at the National.

Representatives from all Dun Laoghaire's clubs registered in the afternoon before the event and received a super goody bag containing plenty of treats including a great Davy SPF balm and a fidget spinner. 

After a comprehensive briefing both fleets commenced launching - the Harbour Fleet took to the water at 10:45 am and the Main Fleet at 11:15 am. Three races were completed by both fleets in gusty winds.

Presentations took place late in the afternoon before the other social part of the evening - the junior disco. While parents socialised on the balcony the junior sailors enjoyed a fun evening that was supervised by the fantastic NYC instructors.
