RIYC’s 1720s are currently undergoing a complete overhaul and will be in racing shape for April.  The club will be releasing the yachts for charter for the DBSC summer series and is seeking members and aspiring members who are competent sailors and helms to form two teams – one for those aged between 18 and 35, and another team of women.

This is a great opportunity to share the helming and other roles on the boat in a way not always possible for crew.  You will be joining the Sportsboats class, the newest class in Dublin Bay, racing against an expected entry of at least 10 privately owned 1720s and sportsboats as well as other club 1720s.

Interested?  Please contact Gill O’Connor on 0866011322 or gilloconnor@gmail.com as soon as possible.  I am hoping to arrange a meeting for those interested in mid-March to give you time to form teams and make plans for the season!
