2017 Irish National Championships – HYC
Our National Championships will be hosted by Howth Yacht Club this year.
The date is 15th – 17th September. Mark it in your diary.
No doubt it will be a very tight and hard fought regatta and if the gods are with us there will also be loads of breeze. It is hoped that a good representation from the Dun Laoghaire fleet will be in attendance along with a good regional representation.
Remember accommodation is readily available close to the club and at affordable rates at that time of the year. The kids will be back in school so there are no excuses.
