Chris Moore continued an unprecedented record of serving sailing administration by guiding Dublin Bay SC through the pandemic

As we emerge from the pandemic and gradually become accustomed to unfettered sailing, it is right and proper that we should salute those who guided our sport through the various regulations and restriction of the last two years and more. Chris Moore of the National YC had already given exceptional services to sailing - including being Commodore of both the NYC and Dublin Bay SC - when he took on the role of DBSC Honorary Secretary before the clamp-downs occurred.

Thus he was running one of the world’s largest yacht racing organisations through unprecedented new challenges, a fact which was recognised with DBSC becoming the Mitsubishi Motors “Sailing Club of the Year” for 2021. But with normality of sorts returning with the club in good heart, it was time to stand down, and in mid-July, he was succeeded in the key role by Rosemary Roy. We salute Chris Moore for his exceptional service to our sport. Team
