Dear Fellow Members,
The club is blessed with quite a few members who derive as much pleasure from sailing their yacht from one port to another as they might do from purely racing them. There are a few who undertake quite extended cruising, quietly, without fanfare, relying purely on their own resources.
There was in the past a “Cruising Group” within the club which, amongst other things, used to arrange National Yacht Club rallies. I remember these as a lot of fun.
The Commodore has asked me to “test the waters” as it were, to see if there is sufficient interest within the club to revive this group, with the aim of sharing ideas, daring tales of cruises, and perhaps even arranging another NYC cruising rally.
Get the America's cup feel by taking part in the Dun Laoghaire Match racing cup 2023. The National Yacht Club delighted to announce this action packed weekend of fun for 10 teams on its Eliotts 6m fleet.

There will be two dedicated groups:
The Developing sailing skills group will focus on growing confidence, progress the basics of sailing effectively on a dinghy (Balance, steering, trim) and grow a better understanding on how to use the controls effectively
The Get racing group will see a training programme aiming at growing racing ability specifically prepare the Frosbites. Sailing skills will certainly still be at the core of the sessions yet aiming at improving racing ability.

The National Yacht club is delighted to host the Flying Fifteen East Coast Championship on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September 2023.
Following from the successful establishment of the Sailors of The Dublin Bay Twentyones we plan on widening the opportunity for more people to experience the World’s Oldest One Design Cruiser / Racer class for themselves and with this in mind we are organising an open day on Sunday 17th September, weather permitting.
The event is open to all and sundry, young and old alike regardless of sailing experience and offers the chance to check out if regular sailing on these beautiful boats may be of interest in the future.
The format is simple – we offer 3 sailing slots during the day – 10.30, 12.30 and 3.00 for a brief orientation and sail in the bay. With 4 boats available we can offer up to 12 participants per session, a chance to experience sailing a classic boat and hopefully from that grow both interest in the class and potential new crew members to participate in regular racing and other events.
A jot form booking form has been set up as per link below
