RAYC Superleague Adds Extra Dimension to Dublin Sailing For the Price of a Pint

#rayc – The Royal Aflred Yacht Club (RAYC) is offering an extra dimension to Dublin Bay sailing for 'the price of a pint', says RAYC Commodore Barry MacNeaney. Covering all cruiser and keelboat classes and with a very modest entry fee of €5 per crew member, the RAYC Superleague series gives a flexibility that allows every competitor a fighting chance.

In 2012, the RAYC racing club  re-launched the 'Superleague' concept – first staged in the 1990s – to a new generation of sailors in 2012 with the aim of 'rewarding the best boats, skippers and crews', across the whole season, in each class in Dublin Bay, the country's biggest sailing centre.

Saturday's Royal Irish Yacht Club Regatta marks the first of the 2014 RAYC league's ten race series. With a generous discard of four races if all ten races are sailed, winners may not be decided till the final race!

Prizes for the winners and for their crew will be presented at the RAYC Annual Black Tie Dinner being held this year in the RIYC on November 21st

Entry forms are in all the Dun Laoghaire Clubs and Howth Yacht Club. On-line entry is also possible 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.
