#elmo – The Royal St. George Yacht Club will name a club launch after after top dinghy racing member Graham Elmes who died tragically last May. 'Elmo' will be launched for the first time tomorrow following a short naming ceremony. 

Graham, a popular member of Dun Laoghaire's waterfront, was a champion in a number of Irish dinghy classes and also a driving force in the development of Irish sailing, where he is sorely missed.

According to the RstGYC, Graham's friends from any walk of life are most welcome to attend tomorrow's launching. Tea and Coffee will be served on the balcony at the clubhouse from noon and Elmo will be christened and then launched at 12:30.
