Royal St. George Yacht Club Call Out For Trinity Alumni!

27th January 2015
Dun Laoghaire's Royal St. George Yacht Club

#dusc – Dublin University Sailing Club will be holding it's second Alumni Regatta at the Royal St. George Yacht Club this March 7. The event was founded with the aim of uniting Trinity sailors throughout the ages.

It was seen to be a great success with Sean Craig, Marshall King and Theo Lyttle, class of 86, 87 and 87 respectively, fighting through into the finals to go up against the Trinity I team and defeat the young pups to take home the trophy.

This year the event will take place once again in the Royal St. George Y.C. on March 7th and we are hoping to see a great turn out both on and off the water, says the RSTGYC's Eunice Kennedy.

It will be sailed in the Trinity fireflies with teams of 3 helms and 3 crews. 

The event will culminate with a black tie dinner held in the Dining Room. Graduates and undergrads of different generations will be asked to stand up and share some stories from their golden days in Trinity sailing.

The Royal St George Yacht Club was founded in Dun Laoghaire (then Kingstown) Harbour in 1838 by a small number of like-minded individuals who liked to go rowing and sailing together. The club gradually gathered pace and has become, with the passage of time and the unstinting efforts of its Flag Officers, committees and members, a world-class yacht club.

Today, the ‘George’, as it is known by everyone, maybe one of the world’s oldest sailing clubs, but it has a very contemporary friendly outlook that is in touch with the demands of today and offers world-class facilities for all forms of water sports including:

  • A vibrant junior section
  • Dry sailing for small keelboats on an extensive hard standing
  • Marina style berthage for larger boats on the club pontoon
  • Parking for a large range of dinghies
  • Own fleet of boats for members use (1720’s, J 80’s, SUP’s, Coastal Rowing boats, Ribs, Optimists etc)
