Casual Boatmen Wanted

Casual Boatmen Wanted

With the departure of Robert, Shaun and Sam to other full time studies or jobs, we are now looking to complement the pool of casual boatmen available to work in the Club's boathouse.

The work carried out by casual boatmen, under the supervision of experienced staff, is wide ranging and both demanding and rewarding in equal measures.

Casual boatmen are involved in all the boathouse duties, ranging from the cleanliness and maintenance of the platform to ferrying members to the moorings to assisting with crane lifts to maintaining club crafts (dinghies, keelboats, RIBs, launches etc)

The boathouse operates 7 days / week all year round,  8h / day in the winter and 12h / day in the summer, with a break around Christmas / New Year.

Casual boatmen, mostly university students, tend to stay with us for many years as hours worked can be quite flexible and tailored to individual requirements.

If you interested in joining the pool of casual boatmen, or even inquire for further details, please fill in the form here

Meanwhile in the boathouse…

As the date of the lift-in - scheduled for Saturday 9th April! - is rapidly approaching, the boathouse team, while still supporting the sailing winter activities, is busily going through a full maintenance programme and attending to the many Club's boats (63 in total!) and other assets to start the summer season in the best possible conditions.

Stephen O’Connor’s retirement presentation

Stephen O’Connor’s retirement presentation

Last weekend, we held a small event to mark Stephen O’Connor’s retirement from full time employment after 13 years service. 
While many members would have liked to attend, cognisant of rising COVID numbers, a small but representative group of members was invited to show the esteem in which Stephen is held by all of us in the Club.

We presented a collection from members (which was matched by the Club) and also a limited edition print of a beautiful painting by Fergal McCabe, which depicts many of the buildings and locations in Dun Laoghaire.
While the event was necessarily low-key, it was also a very fitting way to mark Stephen’s contribution to the NYC over the years.

On behalf of Stephen, I would like to thank all the members that contributed to the collection and who have passed on their good wishes to him. While his full-time days in the boathouse are behind him, I am delighted that Stephen is back in the boathouse at weekends to support platform, craning and launch services to our members, so we can continue to benefit from his experience and his leadership in this area.
