The final act of the season is our End of Season prize-giving this coming Sunday at 3:30pm. This year there is NO Santa but we would like to get as many members down to enjoy a few mince pies, mulled wine or a coffee as we distribute a few Club racing prizes. Club racing was severely impacted by weather (either too much or too little) as well as restrictions due to Dublin Bay water bans but we still have a few prizes to hand out.
It is also an opportunity to welcome in our new Commodore Ian McCormack and Vice-Commodore Ciara O’Tiarnaigh who were elected at last nights AGM. With the recent news of some funding from Sports Capital Programme, the Club with Ian and Ciara at the helm will be pushing on with some exciting developments. Despite poor Club racing last season, the Treasurer reported a stable and well managed financial position which allied to increased participation of our junior and senior sailors at Class and Open events, small but significant increase in membership and great turn-outs for our Open and members sailing courses augurs well for next season. So lets make a special effort to drop down to the Club this Sunday and enjoy some festive spirit.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Next season sees us visit Royal Cork YC on April 25th as part of their 300th Anniversary celebrations. We will be bringing a senior and junior team down to compete for the Book Trophy a landmark event between the 2 Clubs started way back in 1944. We are hoping to make a day of it with all members welcome to join us in Cork and we particularly would like to see past Book Trophy sailors come and celebrate our unique link to the oldest Yacht Club in the World. Please put April 25th 2020 in your diary.
