We are delighted to announce the format and to publish the Notice of Race and draft Sailing Instructions of the Dun Laoghaire Regatta, highlighting the National Yacht Club’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary!
Beyond the NYC, this is the key ‘On-the-Water Event’ for Dun Laoghaire in this Covid pandemic year, encompassing the rationel J80 National Championships, the Shipman National Championships, the SB20 Eastern Championships and the 29er Eastern Championships!
With all the Clubs’ Regatta normally held in June and July cancelled earlier, the Dun Laoghaire Regatta’ in September is the key Sailing Celebration Event in 2020 and is fully supported and co-organised with the other waterfront Clubs (Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club, Royal Irish Yacht Club and Royal St George Yacht Club) and we are very grateful to them.
The organisers would also like to thank DBSC which is providing key logistical and expertise support to our Clubs’ Regatta and are acknowledging this crucial support by giving a 50% discount on entry fees for all boats already entered in the DBSC Summer series and taking part in the Dun Laoghaire Regatta*
(* this discount is already factored in the J80, SB20, Shipman and 29er Class Championships taking place over the same weekend)
As you are aware, it will also be a very different sort of Regatta as all restrictions on in-door gatherings and social distancing rules (in the Clubhouse, on the platform, in the launches, on pontoons and slipways) will remain in place and strictly adhered to.
However, lets the shore-side situation not spoil our enjoyment on the water and we will hopefully see all our racing members supporting this event in the best way they know…by winning races!!
