Sailors of Dublin Bay Twentyones launch new website

May 3, 2024 | Sailing

The Sailors of the Dublin Bay Twentyones have launched their new website www.dublinbay21.ie

The fleet of classic one design yachts, designed in 1902 by Alfred Mylne for Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC), has since 2021 undergone a revival after a 35 year hiatus. The website provides details about the fleet including a very active sailing programme combining DBSC racing, cruising events, regattas, training days and Parades of Sail, the history of the fleet and how to become part of the Sailors of Dublin Bay Twentyones. 

Four of the fleet, Estelle, Garavogue, Naneen and Geraldine, can be seen moored off the Dun Laoghaire harbour East Pier from where they race every Tuesday and Saturday. The East Pier moorings, adjacent to the band stand, have been provided by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and this support is very much appreciated by the Class Association and the Sailors of Dublin Bay Twentyones.

The revival of these classic yachts was undertaken by the Class Association, which owns the boats, led by Hal Sisk and Fionán de Barra. A further three boats, Oola, Maureen and Innisfallen will rejoin the fleet with Oola expected to return to Dublin Bay in July.

The Class Association is supported by the Sailors of Dublin Bay Twentyones. The latter is a not for profit organisation whose remit is to ensure the sustainability of the fleet by sailing the boats in all races and events held for the Class in the vicinity of Dublin Bay during the sailing season, May to October and thus generating income to cover maintenance and related sailing costs.
