Cruising Talk & Supper December 4th

Cormac F Lowth has written many excellent articles related to our shores and also presents them well with contemporary photographs and anecdotes.Throughout most of the 19th. Century, Ringsend was home to a large fleet of gaff-rigged sailing beam trawlers. The first of these boats and their crews originated in Brixham in Devon in 1819, and there was an interchange of boats and people between Ringsend and Devon for most of the Century

Creagh Moore Sous Chef RIYC

Creagh Moore who is our Sous Chef has entered the RTE 'A Taste of Success 2014' television competition.

Creagh is lucky enough to still be in the competition that commenced filming in July and was broadcasted from 2lst October.

Creagh’s product in the competition is a low fat, high protein chicken broth, containing lentils, barley and pulses.  600 products were entered into the competition representing the four regions.  Out of the 600, 32 products have been picked for the competition.  The competition is down to the last 16 products, 4 from the Dublin region with Creagh's product being one of them.

On my own behalf and on behalf of committee members, members and staff from the Royal Irish Yacht Club I would like to wish Creagh every success in the remainder of the competition.

The role of the Boathouse is to provide the best possible sailing environment for Members at a reasonable cost.

The Club has excellent facilities, which should cater for the sailing needs of all members. In order to provide this service to members the current general regulations governing the use of the boathouse and pontoons/moorings are outlined below, and also as published, after Committee approval, twice yearly, on the mooring and parking application forms.

We have at least 13 adult sailors participating in the Turkey Shoot, thanks to Dublin Bay Sailing Club encouraging this programme.  Skippers have found this an ideal time to train up possible new crew.

If any skipper would like crew for the remainder of the Turkey Shoot or for the Spring Chicken in 2015, please email
