‘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,

Joyce R.

A fantastic turn out at Irish GP14 weekend @ sunny Greystones SC. Amazing 24 boats challenging for the Irish Youth championship and 29 boats in the separate Autumn Open.

Sutton Dinghy Clubs David Johnston was one of 3 who competed in both events with crew Eanna Molony Lawless. With Alan Blay absent it was a first opportunity of the season for David to take the helm. 8 long races over the 2 days meant a tough weekend for the pair. An excellent 3rd behind Shane McCarthy and Ger Owens on Saturday was a highlight, eventually finishing 9th overall in Senior event and topping Silver fleet. Katie Dwyer and Michelle Rowley finished 11th. Summary results below. Full results on website later.
