Bart's Bash - World Record Attempt

Bart's Bash - World Record Attempt

This year has been all about putting the fun back into sailing. We’ve had a night race, the annual adult course and a very successful 1014 celebration. You’d think that would be difficult to top but on Sunday 21 September 2014 there’s every chance Clontarf Yacht and Boat Club (and you of course) could go down in the Guinness Book of Records.

Dublin Port Parade of Sail

Dublin Port Company have installed new permanent pontoons on the River Liffey at North Wall Quay (beside the O2). Dublin Port Company, Sail Training Ireland, Irish Sailing Association have linked up with Cruising Association of Ireland's annual "Liffey Cruise" to create the Dublin Port Parade of Sail on the weekend of 27 & 28 September 2014.  All members of the boating community are invited to take part in a flotilla to officially open these pontoons, which are now available for use by vessels wishing to visit the capital. The River Liffey Flotilla coincides with the Dublin Port Vintage Car Rally, just up the quays for cruising sailors to stroll up and discover some great old wonders of the roads.

E Boat National Championships 2014

E Boat National Championships 2014

The 2014 E Boat National Championships were held in Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club on the weekend of 18th – 20th July 2014. After much deliberations and preparations 11 Boats entered the event; 4 from Skerries and 7 from Clontarf.

 

With the forecast of fog and mist rolling in over Dublin Bay running the races proved to be very challenging for our Race Officer, Ian Sargent, but the full complement of 6 races were completed in the 3 days.

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.
