Club’s Women on the Water Team Win NYC Regatta Prize

The National Yacht Club Women on the Water team continues to grow in numbers with up to 30 lady sailors now sailing weeklyin DBSC Racing on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This enthusiastic group entered two 1720 Sportsboats in last weekend's club regatta with an all ladies crew. It was a glorious day of sunshine with two windward/leeward races providing lots of challenging sailing.

The NYC awarded a Women's Boat prize in recognition of the many new and returning ladies to sailing in the club. This was jointly won by one of our 1720s helmed by Fiona Staunton and an SB20 sailed by Sarah Byrne from Greystones.

Nippers 2018 – Update

Nippers 2018 – Update

We have completed another year of nippers.  30 keen sailors aged 6-8 yrs old participated in this 6 week Cara Na Mara programme.  We had up to 10 helpers per week, club members aged 10-12 who sat in Club Optimists with the sailors and we would like to thank them for their support.

On the last night, we organised a trip to the lifeboat station where our young sailors learnt all about the fabulous work the volunteers do.  The parents and siblings met in the dining room for a meal to celebrate the end of the course.

Here are some photos from the last night, we look forward to seeing these junior sailors on the minor and full day summer courses in the coming months.

Thanks to Fiona Staunton & Neassa Dolan who organised this programme
