UCD Sailing Club Host 'Movember' Team Racing Event at Royal Irish Yacht Club

27th November 2019
UCD Sailing Club Host 'Movember' Team Racing Event at Royal Irish Yacht Club

This Saturday 30th of November, UCD Sailing Club are running a charity team racing event in aid of the Movember Foundation.

Teams have been going head to head throughout the past month seeing who can grow the best moustache, and they will continue to battle it out on the water during the racing. The participants will spend the last few hours with their furry friends on the water, and on recovery, we will have a ceremonial shaving.

There will be free tea and coffee all day for UCD, kindly provided by the Royal Irish Yacht Club. After racing there will be mince pies and mulled wine waiting inside, for a celebration for the freshly shaved faces.

If you know anyone who would be interested in entering a team in this event, or can be of any help sponsoring prizes, please email [email protected] If November sailing isn’t for you, we also have a donation link for our team and we really appreciate all donations here

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.
