We are excited to support the sailing community and showcase the thrilling synergy between precision engineering and exhilarating performance.

Previous Success: Wave Regatta

The biennial Wave Regatta has become a thrilling spectacle on Ireland’s East Coast. It invites sailors to compete in a showcase keelboat-racing event designed to ensure top quality racing and unrivalled après-sail for a range of keelboats, including the top-end high-performance ones, local one-designs - such as the record-setting Howth 17s – and the increasingly popular ‘White Sail’ fleet. The 2024 edition promises three days of exhilarating racing, camaraderie, and celebration. To be held this year on May 24th - 26th (a week earlier on the calendar than previous iterations), Wave Regatta is renowned as one of the highest quality keelboat racing events in Ireland, combining a spectacular racecourse area along Fingal’s beautiful coastline, Howth Yacht Club’s unrivalled race management teams afloat and the Club’s award-winning facilities and staff that ensure an unsurpassed experience ashore.

Commodore Neil Murphy enthusiastically welcomed Porsche’s decision saying: “We are delighted to welcome Porsche Centre Dublin as our headline sponsors for Wave Regatta 2024. Their commitment to excellence and innovation aligns perfectly with our Club’s values. This partnership ensures that Wave 2024 will maintain the regatta’s established reputation as a top-class national event and we look forward to working with Porsche in delivering the regatta that is highly anticipated by the sailing  community, making an exciting start to the 2024 sailing season.”
