Welcome to Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club

Junior Regatta 2014

Junior Regatta 2014

Our Junior Regatta was held on the 25th July in what was absolutely ideal conditions to hold an event like this - constant breeze - not too light and not too strong for the younger juniors some of whom were at their first event.

 

While mainly attended by our own juniors this year, we did have some visitors from Howth and Sutton which is always great to see. The larger fleets racing on the day were Toppers and Laser 4.7’s, however we had enough boats for a race for 420’s, Pico’s, Mirrors, Laser Radial and Optimists.

Dinghy Night Race

Do you:

  • Fear the dark?
  • Things that go bump (or crunch) in the night?
  • Is Saturday night stilettos night?
  • Does a swaying motion at the weekend mean only one thing?

Then look away now as our proposition isn’t for you...

Burgee Exchange with the Sydney Flying Squadron

Burgee Exchange with the Sydney Flying Squadron

Following the E Boat Nationals prize giving yesterday & some lessons on how to correctly hold a burgee (it's amazing how many ways a three cornered flag can be held up), there was an exchange of burgees between our Commodore, Maurice Wilson & the Commodore of the Sydney Flying Squadron - our very own Felix Finlay.

Wacky Races & Summer Sun - CY&BC Battle of Clontarf Celebrations

Wacky Races & Summer Sun - CY&BC Battle of Clontarf Celebrations

One thousand years further on and here we were celebrating the epic Battle of Clontarf with lashings of sunscreen, breac, ice cold drinks and a festival of sail. By the time the cloud had broken on Saturday afternoon, a fleet of 80 boats of all shapes, sizes, constructions and age (crewed by an equally mixed bunch, we might add) had gathered afloat.

 

Led by the majestic Galway Hooker, Naomh Cronan from Poolbeg Yacht & Boat Club, the fleet conducted a spectacular sail past Clontarf promenade. There were Vikings (with occasional engine trouble), monks in lifejackets, two chimney impersonators and even Dick Dastardly, Penelope Pitstop & sidekick Muttley amongst our wacky racers. The racing curraghs and canoes of Stella Maris Rowing Club, 5th Port (Dollymount) Sea Scouts and East Wall Watersports raced each other and engaged in sporadic water fights. Dinghies old & new, dressed in flags, sipped in between them all. It was 1014 without the bloodshed!

 

Have a look through our photo albums of the weekend on Facebook for Saturday & Sunday or at our own selection of the pictures taken afloat & ashore.

Laser Class - New Beginnings

Laser Class - New Beginnings

You may have noticed some new dinghies on the start line this year and the good news is your eyes do not deceive you. The Laser sailors have clearly caught the bug since Clontarf’s 2013 Winter Series and are working to get a separate class start for the 2014 summer sailing season. With 5 starters already for club racing they have momentum on their side. Radial and Full rigs are welcome. If you have a Laser dinghy, can borrow one or even want to buy one to join them give Gary Sargent (086 0403476) or Mark McGowan (087 2555248) a buzz. Amazingly these two have volunteered themselves as virtual class captains for the year!
