Royal St. George's Robert Walker shot this short timelapse video showing the training that is ongoing this week for the Elmo Cup team racing and the Dun Laoghaire Harbour granite pond venue looks superb in the August sunshine!

The Elmo Cup takes place on 27/28 August at the Royal Saint George.

As Afloat previously reported, this year sees the return of last year's debutants Glandore Harbour Yacht Club, as well as the first ever Donegal entry, Rathmullan Sailing Club.

The home club will look to defend the trophy after the success of ‘Sea Buoys’ last year as Afloat reported here.

The event will be sailed in three flights of Firefly dinghies, where teams of six crews will race each other in a round-robin format.

RStGYC currently have 30 teams in five flights entered with six in each team, so a total of 180 sailors aged between 12 and 18.
