Mayfly was bought by the Dun Laoghaire club earlier this year and is being used for day sails, short cruises and racing.
Dublin has a large and growing fleet of First 31.7s and Mayfly is already a hit with SID’s members.
They have been familiarising themselves with the boat over the summer, including cruises to Wicklow and Carlingford, and it was entered in the Dun Laoghaire Regatta.
Mayfly is currently available to members and guests for day sails and short cruises, and will be entered in the Turkey Shoot later this year. It replaces the club’s Sigma 33, Obsession, which provided many years of racing and cruising.
Sailing In Dublin is a unique club which offers members unlimited use of its dinghies and keelboats for a small annual membership fee.
The focus is on being friendly, affordable and open to all. Members can take part in day sails or longer cruises — and can helm, crew and race — in dinghies or keelboats.
Membership has also been slashed to a new rate of €200 to the end of March 2020.
