The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions for the Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club At Home Regatta (18th & 19th July) are now available to download.
See the full article for the links.
Following on from the popularity of the Try Sailing day at Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club, we are running a special introduction to sailing course for adults at the end of July.
We are on a mission to get as many people using our fantastic facility as possible. We have an active club only 4km from the city centre. We want people to experience the wonderful sport of sailing and see Dublin from a different perspective.
If you have always wanted to sail a dinghy – now’s the time! How about trying to sail a bigger boat? You can sail on one of the cruisers!!
The RNLI held its Annual Presentation of Awards at the Guinness Storehouse on Saturday where the charity presented 55 awards to volunteers, groups and businesses from across the country that have made a significant contribution to the RNLI in Ireland through their commitment, dedication and support.
Three CY&BC members received awards: Basil & Louise McMahon and Helen Doogue.
Spring is in the air - and you all know what that means - time for the CY&BC Eurovision BBQ!! The barbeque will start at 7pm with a cost of €12 per person.
Feel free to come down earlier for a apertif. Or three... You should book your choice of steak or salmon at the Club bar. As ever your choice of protein will be accompanied by the usual fantastic array of salads.
Two steel presses approx. 6 feet x 3 feet x 18” deep with three shelves to be installed for Member's tools, parts & kit storage in the Boat Shed.
This pilot scheme is being introduced to meet the changing needs of members e.g. apartment living where tool etc. storage can be an issue.
Also it may suit different Classes to take a press to store common ownership tooling & kit on site where they can be easily accessed, rather than sitting in someone's garage.
Please support the Annual Lifeboat Auction at Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club on Friday 24th April, 2015.
Free cheese & wine from 2030 to 2130.
Auction will begin at 2145 approx.
Please bring along or donate items to be auctioned - unwanted Christmas presents etc.
Lifesaving charity, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), has commissioned Substance to undertake new research with yacht sailors in Ireland. This is to understand their approach to yacht sailing and their approach to safety.
The research is in partnership with the Irish Sailing Association and supported by a range of other organisations including the Cruising Association of Ireland and the Irish Cruising Club.
The survey can be accessed and completed online at this link: http://www.rnliyachtingireland.substance.coop/
The survey remains open until April 30th and it is important that as many sailors in Ireland as possible take part.
It’s been full steam ahead (literally) since our last update. We’ve been flying through the ribbing, and it’s been fantastic to see progress as each station is removed to allow for more space to put the next ribs in.
In our quest to find the perfect way to steam the ribs, we’re now on version 4: a bicycle tube cut open and straightened out.
