Perfect conditions for HYC Dinghy Regatta

Last week’s Dinghy Regatta which was kindly sponsored by MGM Boats had a total of 53 entries with the Regatta Fleet being the largest class with a total of 13 entries. Howth Yacht Club was delighted to welcome the 420 sailors from as far afield as Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club and a special entry of IDRA's from both Sutton Dinghy Club and Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club.

PRO Richard Kissane managed the main fleet and he and his team ran 3 consecutive races on Sunday afternoon with the wind strength of 10-17 knots making perfect racing conditions.

The Regatta Fleet racing was managed by David Sargent and his team ran 6 races and also his infamous fun race (chasing balloons filled with chocolate) much to the delight of the returning and hyper sailors!

A special thanks to our Sponsors MGM Boats, Jenny Harris, Brian McDowell and their fantastic rescue team, Race Officers Richard and David, John Deane and all the volunteers involved.
