Notice of Race  ENTER HERE   

RIYC is hosting the Feva National Championships July 1-3rd 2022. With up to forty entries expected, including competitors from around Ireland and UK, the Feva is one of the most exciting double-handed dinghies ever!
 
RIYC Cadets are playing their part in the successful ‘combined club’ class initiative by building a local fleet of Fevas to encourage double-handed sailing. RIYC has six Fevas for charter and the fleet is expected to expand.  RIYC members and friends can now purchase new boats at a special discount from Marine Services, as well as a vibrant second-hand market. Feva sailing is growing in popularity with shortages of in-demand, quality boats.  The inter-club initiative to grow the fleet is a unique opportunity to purchase new boats that hold long term value in the second-hand market. 
 
A fun and exciting boat, the Feva is ideal for teenagers to transition from single-handed sailing and experience fun and adventure with their friends on a double handed dinghy. The RIYC Junior Committee and inter-club Feva initiative aims to grow and encourage all levels of ability and interest in both social and competitive sailing. So, if you are looking for a fun, exciting and competitive boat, then the Feva is perfect to experience all aspects of Club sailing, racing and National / International events. It is a proven pathway into performance 29er, 420, RS200 and as well as yacht racing and cruising.
 
Currently, there are forty-four Fevas in Dun Laoghaire and up to eighty in Ireland, making it one of the fastest growing fleets in the country. The aim of the ‘combined clubs’ is to have a sixty-boat fleet in the Harbour by the end of the year.
