Following on from the successful lift of sailing cruisers at Dun Laoghaire Harbour a fortnight ago, at the Royal St. George Yacht Club and National Yacht Clubs, another east coast club has launched for the 2021 boating season.

It might be a little unclear when the season is to officially start under lockdown but there is no doubt 'boating season 2021' is well underway in any case given the level of activity on the water this weekend up and down the country.

Wicklow Sailing Club launched its cruiser fleet yesterday from its South Quay clubhouse.

Approximately 15 cruisers were launched by crane on a perfect Spring morning. As always at Wicklow, it was the team spirit that led to the safe and successful completion of the lift-in.
