Trinity Sailing Club Hosts Colours Match At New Grand Canal Dock Venue

#colourmatch – This Saturday, Trinity Sailing Club hosts its Colours team racing Event at a new Grand Canal Dock venue in Dublin city. All six UCD and TCD teams will compete against each other in the Dubarry of Ireland sponsored event. A flyer on the event is downloadable below. Read our Colours Match event report and photography HERE.

Traditionally this event takes place in Dun Laoghaire harbour but after the success of last year's match, which took place on the River Liffey in front of the Convention Centre, Trinity is taking the event to another new and unique location – Grand Canal Dock. Racing begins at 10a.m. sharp with a head to head, best of three matches between the corresponding teams, starting with TCD6 vs. UCD6.

In the afternoon the traditional Alumni and Ladies' races will take place before the two First teams compete for the title of winners of Colour's 2015.

All are welcome to come down and watch some competitive racing this Saturday.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
