Race Report

Sutton Dinghy Club's Regatta was an outstanding success with 85 boats and 115 sailors competing. Strong winds provided a great challenge to many sailors fresh from summer sailing courses and many impressed with improved racing skills. Multiple capsizes ensured that rescue boats and personnel were kept busy. Our thanks and appreciation go to neighbouring clubs who supplied additional rescue boats without which the event could not have been run to the same level of success and enjoyment.

A novel feature of the regatta was the appearance of the Kona fleet of winsurfers, visiting from Malahide Sailing Club who found fresh challenges on the open sea.








The Optimist Crosbie Cup was a great success. The weather was fantastic. A big thank you to all competitors and especially to all volunteers who helped make it such a special event enjoyed by all.
