The RstGYC had a hugely successful showing at the ISA Youth National Championships 9th to 12th April in RCYC. There were four days of intense competition with conditions varying from light and shifty to squalls of 25 knots and as always in Cork Harbour, challenging tides. For George sailors, however, this just allowed them to put all the hard training hours done over the winter into practice and boy, did it pay off. Many congratulations to all the Club's sailors who took part.

The Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire, the 2013 recipient of the Mitsubishi ISA Club of the Year, hosted its principal annual event, the George’s Day Dinner on Saturday, 27th April 2013. This year the celebration was all the more special for it marking the 175th year since the Club was founded. To the delight of guests and Members, Honorary Member, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Executive Chairman and Founder Director of Clipper Ventures Plc was the guest speaker on the night. Sir Robin kept everyone utterly enthralled with his stories of adventure on the high seas. As part of the evenings proceeding at the George’s Day Dinner, Commodore Liam O’Rourke awarded the Jameson Trophy, the Club’s premier trophy which is presented for outstanding contribution; this year’s recipient was Ken Williams who started working for the Club as a contractor overseeing the Forecourt development in the late eighties and has been an integral part of the Club’s fabric for nearly twenty five years, he is much loved by both Members and staff. To the best of their knowledge, it is the first time in its history that the trophy has been awarded to a non-Club Member.

In 2013 we awarded our Club’s prestigious Annual Trophies with all the glitz and glamour of the Oscars. It was a night to remember and a fitting celebration of the great accomplishments of our Members.
