‘Dear Dinghy club, My son has just completed two weeks sailing camp at your club. I’m writing to thank you for such a wonderful camp. Carl has benefited enormously from his experiences with you over the last two weeks, he has been full of chat and enthusiasm about his sailing and has really enjoyed the comradery and fun atmosphere of the camp.   He will definitely be back for more sailing and thank you for introducing him to a new sport on such a positive note!’   All the best,

With Sutton Dinghy Club fully occupied hosting the Mirror Nationals and the GP 14 Leinster Championships, three of the Sutton IDRA 14s travelled to Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club for the annual “At Home” weekend – 2 races for the Regatta on Saturday, and the Sunbeam Cup race on Sunday. Despite challenging conditions with shifty winds on Saturday, they did Sutton proud: Al Henry & Simon Revill in 14/134 swept the board with two straight wins in the Regatta, while Alan Carr & Dana Kilroy in 14/38 took third place. For the Sunday Sunbeam Cup, 14/38 was out of the running, so it was up to the two remaining Sutton boats to show their abilities in a race which started off fine but hit a vicious rain squall on the second round. Despite the conditions, both stayed upright and led the fleet – Alan & Simon again took first place followed in second place by Charles Sargent & Caoimhe Fleming in 14/126. ... See MoreSee Less
