CHARITY PURSUIT RACE in aid of SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Members are aware of the proud tradition at the “George” of inclusion in sailing. Hard to believe it’s 10 years since the “George” hosted the sailing events for Special Olympics World Summer Games in 2003. Today, our own Special Needs sailors are regularly to be seen on the water in their fleet of squibs.

There will be a great social programme to compliment this wonderful event:

Sailing Supper in the Dining Room - Two Course for €20

BBQ with Pig on a Spit

Live Music from 9pm

On Friday September 13th at 18:00 the George will host a very special “pursuit” race to continue our support for Special Olympics and members are invited to support this initiative by taking part in the event and encouraging family, friends, relations and colleagues to experience the thrill of yacht racing in a once-off pursuit race.  

All cruisers, white sail cruisers, dinghies and keelboats are invited to participate. Why not use the opportunity to invite friends who expressed an interest in racing to come along? Regular race teams might use the event for a crewmember to helm. Race boats owned by Sailing Schools other Commercial Groups are encouraged. There is no requirement to comply with Class rules. A fun filled and inclusive theme mean all boats are encouraged to fly decorative flags/ burgees/ house flags etc.

Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions are available to download on the right. For more details contact Gerry Harvey on 086 8436233.
