It is with the greatest regret that we report the death of Clare Hogan, an extremely talented sailor - particularly in the International Dragon Class - who also gave much to sailing administration, having served as Commodore of the Royal Alfred Yacht Club in Dublin Bay.

Clare was a member of the Royal St. George Yacht Club and a keen Dragon ace campaigning her Dragons Aphrodite and Cloud in Dublin Bay and at various international Dragon events.

Tributes have been paid by Dublin Bay Sailing Club here 

Funeral arrangements are here.

Our heartfelt thoughts and condolences are with her family and many friends. Team
