Other sailing clubs welcoming Phase 2 of the recovery roadmap were Cullaun Sailing Club, who said they are looking forward to seeing all members from across Co Clare or within 20km of the club (which includes the northern part of Limerick city) set sail over the coming days.
As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the latest stage of relaxing restrictions against coronavirus will allow for non-competitive and unsupervised activity for up to 15 people, including trainers and coaches, up from the previous four.

Mixed household crew will also be allowed for larger multi-hander vessels were social distancing can be maintained.
The club is also asking all members to complete a contact tracing form in line with Irish Sailing and Government guidelines and help ensure continued sailing activity without the reimposition of restrictions.
The site notice for the proposed development at Carrownakilly seeks permission to replace the existing storage shed and portacabin with a permanent building including shower and lavatory facilities, a small kitchen, assembly rooms and storage space.
The proposal also includes new car parking, bin storage and a waste water tank, a revised site entrance and an extension of the existing boat storage area.
Next steps for the Co Clare club will involve fundraising efforts to cover the costs of the new facilities.
Last week, Killaloe Sailing Club hosted its annual sailing regatta. Founded in 1973 at the Lakeside Hotel in Killaloe, the club hosts an open regatta every year. For 2015 it was decided to hold the event over two days, rather than the usual one day event.
A healthy field of over 30 boats took to the water on both days to compete in seven races over the two days.
The open regatta was open to any sailing dinghy and the club used the PY (Portsmouth Yardstick) handicap system for racing a field of multi class boats, therefore just like golf the first boat over the line on the water might not necessarily win on handicap.
From the first race on day one, Jim Ryan and David Tanner were out in front with their Fireball winning the first race comfortably, followed home by Daniel O’Sullivan and David Coleman in their RS400 and Brian and Conor Bryce in third place also in an RS400. Jim Ryan and David Tanner were well beaten by Daniel O’Sullivan and David Coleman in the second race of the day, with the all lady crew of Susie Coote and Charlotte Carway in their RS200 upsetting the order of the lead boats by sneaking in fourth. While nobody could catch Jim Ryan and David Tanner in the last two races of the day, thanks to the PY handicapping system the battle behind them was heating up for second place between Susie Coote and Charlotte Carway in their RS200 and Ronan Gilmartin in his Laser Radial with only six points separating them.
Day two brought about much more benign conditions. However things did not change at the front of the field with Jim Ryan and David Tanner taking three from three and wrapping up the regatta. Daniel O’Sullivan and David Coleman were a consistent second. David’s daughter Megan and Nadine O’Sullivan managed a class win in their RS200, while Susie Coote and Charlotte Carway took the other two wins in the RS200 class. PY handicaps were tallied and the final results were:
