Howth Seventeen

Designed in 1897 and first built and launched in 1898, the Howth Seventeen Footer is the oldest one-design keelboat racing class in the world and is still racing today to its original design!

2015 Season 

The competition is heating up with the race for the 2015 Ross Courtney Memorial Trophy. Isobel’s win at  Clontarf’s ‘At Home’ Regatta pulls them back to neck and neck with Oona, with the chasing pack some 14 behind. Will this end up being a two horse race or will Deilginis find some pace again to upset the front runners? Every race now counts, with only two ‘6 pointer’ & a handful of ‘3 pointer’ events left in the 2015 series.
