Calling all dinghy, SUP, kayak, rowing, and small powerboat
‘Splash For Ukraine’
In aid of the Ukrainian Humanitarian Crisis
Dun Laoghaire Harbour
1pm Saturday 12th March
Calling all dinghy, stand up paddle (SUP), kayak, rowing and small powerboat owners to a ‘Splash For Ukraine’ in Dun Laoghaire Harbour this Saturday 12th March at 1 pm in aid of the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis. Meet on the water at 1 pm by the bandstand on the east pier and sail/motor/paddle counter-clockwise around the harbour. Dinghies and powerboats are invited to do two laps, while SUPs, kayaks and rowing boats can do one.
We would ask that attendees donate what they can to the Irish Red Cross Ukrainian Crisis Appeal via this link https://donate.redcross.ie/ or via Revolut. We would also ask that everyone wear yellow and blue and if they have one, fly the Ukrainian flag from their craft or person.
Dun Laoghaire harbour waterfront club members should launch from their respective clubs and all other attendees are invited to launch from the public slipways by the east pier and coal harbour. We would ask that all attendees navigate at a safe speed (limit of 8 knots/15 kph) and observe all fairways.
All Notice to Mariners can be found on the Dun Laoghaire Harbour website – www.dlharbour.ie/harbour-information/notice-to-mariners/.
Organiser and local Laser dinghy sailor, Gavan Murphy, say’s ‘Like most, I’m appalled and horrified at the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and the humanitarian crisis unfolding as Ukrainian people are being driven from their homes. I would invite all dinghy, SUP, kayak, rowing and small powerboat owners to attend this solidarity fundraising event in order to assist the Irish Red Cross with their efforts in supplying vital humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian people’
