Dinghy Club's Regatta was an outstanding
success with 85 boats and 115 sailors competing. Strong
winds provided a great challenge to many sailors fresh from
summer sailing courses and many impressed with improved
racing skills. Multiple capsizes ensured that rescue boats
and personnel were kept busy. Our thanks and appreciation
go to neighbouring clubs who supplied additional rescue
boats without which the event could not have been run to
the same level of success and enjoyment.
novel feature of the regatta was the appearance of the Kona
fleet of winsurfers, visiting from Malahide Sailing Club
who found fresh challenges on the open sea.
Optimist Crosbie Cup was a great success. The weather was
fantastic. A big thank you to all competitors and especially
to all volunteers who helped make it such a special event
enjoyed by all.
