Royal Irish Ladies Make A Day Of It On Dublin Bay

#RIYC - The women of the Royal Irish Yacht Club filled four 1720s for two great races on Dublin Bay as part of the club’s Ladies Race last Friday 27 July.

Conditions were challenging with gusts of up to 25 knots, but that’s nothing these women can’t handle — particularly Gill O’Connor, who did a top-notch job organising the day having just had a baby three weeks ago.

Michael Tyrrell also served as race officer for the day, which is hoped to become an annual fixture on the Royal Irish calendar.

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.
