#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.
