IDRA 14 – 75th Anniversary



75th Anniversary


The IDRA 14 Dinghy has a long association with the Royal St George Yacht Club, and many of our members have happy memories of sailing them over the years.  The Class wishes to invite all former owners and crews to join them in the Celebrations to mark the postponed 75th Birthday Jubilee at Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club.  The Celebrations will consist of sailing at CYBC on
Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, with a race for former owners on Sunday at 1400 hrs, and a Jubilee Dinner in the Royal St George Yacht Club Dún Laoghaire on Saturday the 8th October

Designed by George O’Brien Kennedy, the 14’ dinghy was to become the cornerstone of the Irish Dinghy Racing Association, which became todays Irish Sailing.  134 IDRAs were built in total, and approx 50 are still sailing.
