Originally hosted from the decks of the 102-ft Lightship Albatross in Dún Laoghaire Harbour, the event has grown popular as ever within Sea Scouting under a very exciting team-racing format using fleets of Pico/ Topaz ensuring it is fun and accessible for all at Malahide in North County Dublin.

Alongside the main team-racing event, competitors face a seamanship challenge where they are scored on board a multi-hander to sail efficiently around a course and complete exercises as a team such as man-overboard and anchoring.

To mark the 50th anniversary, a single-handed race was also included in this year's events; the Albatross Race, won by Shane O'Rourke from Arklow.To mark the 50th anniversary, a single-handed race was also included in this year's events; the Albatross Race, won by Shane O'Rourke from Arklow.

The 16 teams from Malahide, Howth, Dun Laoghaire, Dollymount and Arklow all put in a fantastic effort under very testing and breezy conditions.

Organisers gave a big thanks to Officer Of the Day Colum McCaffrey and Race Officers Roger Campion and Sean Anglim from Malahide YC, who provided x 46 safe and exciting races under two fleets which made for an excellent day of sailing!

Congratulations to the full female Malahide Néala team, who came out on top as this year's Team Racing winners.
