Jul 14, 2023 | Home Page Featured, Sailing

As sailing events go, Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta is big by any measure, so there is no surprise that this year’s National Yacht Club hosted VDLR prizegiving on Sunday evening was an equally big affair with hundreds of sailors gathered to salute the winners at Ireland’s largest sailing event.  There were NYC winners a plenty and a fantastic atmosphere prevailed all across the platform and throughout the Club.

The ceremony brought the curtain down on four days of thrilling sailing where almost 2,000 sailors in 400 boats took on heavy weather conditions on Dublin Bay.

Congratulations to all the NYC crews that competed in such challenging conditions.  Hats off to our NYC winners Chris Johnston, Shane McCarthy, Johnnie Phillips and John Masterson and well done to all other teams who were to the fore in their respective fleets.
