‘George’ Invitational Team Racing Regatta

25th & 26th May 2024

Emerging like a phoenix, demand for top grade team racing events has resulted in the revival of the renowned George Invitational which maintained twenty years of continuity in the sport in Dun Laoghaire in the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s until the club ran the 2nd  World Team Racing Championships in 1999. In times past the Invitational welcomed the top team racers from the UK, Ireland & the US to Dun Laoghaire to compete for the George Invitational Trophy.  

Set against the backdrop of the home of Team Racing in Dun Laoghaire, the George is organising two days of Swiss League team racing aboard Fireflies dinghies followed by knockout sailing on May the 25th and 26th. The event is a celebration of the clubs long & successful history as the cradle of Irish team racing and the birthplace of the sport almost eight decades ago.

Alongside the racing there will be an opportunity for team racers past and present to meet & enjoy the event in the George & participate in the dinner on Saturday night in the George dining room for all sailors, race officials and volunteers. Teams are encouraged to enter early.
