Brassed Off Cup for Optimists on Good Friday
Howth Yacht Club's annual Brassed Off Cup is once again being held on the traditional day of Good Friday, which falls on 19th April of this year. This fun Optimist dinghy event is a great opportunity for junior racers to dust off their gear and get out to enjoy sailing in Spring weather on the safe waters just north of Howth harbour. It will also help many sailors sharpen their skills for the trials which take place in RCYC the following week.
The event has been built into a very popular and well attended date in the Optimist sailing calendar over the past few years, with more than 60 young sailors from across Dublin expected to take part, including expected good participation from Novice/ Regatta Fleet sailors. Three short races are planned from 12 noon and the Notice of Race, Online Entry and Sailing Instructions are available here.
