Ross O Leary (right) was rewarded for his excellent work as Laser class captain. He has encouraged many new members to the Laser classes and this in turn has resulted in new club members due to the training he has organised. Every sailor feels supported and encouraged with the training sessions. Most of all he ensured that everyone has fun both on and off the water.

The Royal St George Yacht Club hosted its Annual ‘Sailing Oscars’, the Sailing Awards for 2018 earlier this month.

As Afloat previously reported, the awards are a celebration of the Royal St George Yacht Club's Sailing Achievements of 2018, and of the members of the Royal St George Yacht Club. All winners are congratulated by the Sailing Committee in recognising them as RStGYC Sailors & Club members with significant achievements during 2018. The event was attended by over 100 people including award nominees across seven prize categories and the newly appointed Commodore, Peter Bowring and Rear Commodore (Sailing), Mark Hennessy.

The event celebrated a busy and very successful 2018 for the club both on and off the water highlights of which included the hosting of the Laser Master World Championships, the Volvo Irish Sailing Pathway National Championships, The Sigma 33 Class and Irish Championships, The Frank Keane BMW George Regatta, The Shipman & Ruffian National Championships, The Waszp & Moth National Championships, both Junior & Schools All Ireland Championships… to mention a few.

There was a great number of strong nominees across many classes with a good number of youth sailors also involved.

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

  • Marina type berthage for larger boats

  • 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)
