Irish Sailing League on the Right Track for Its Inaugural Season

Steady entries are coming in for the Irish Sailing League with the inaugural event coming over the weekend of 20-21 April, as Kenneth Rumball writes.

We are delighted to welcome two more clubs to the entry list who committed over the weekend.

The Royal Irish Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire has declared it will definitively enter one team with a distinct possibility to enter a second team which will be confirmed in the coming week.

Waterford Harbour Sailing Club has also confirmed that they have a five-person team and have officially entered the fray for this year.

This brings the total clubs with a commitment now to include:

Steady progress for 2024 with plenty of space for other teams to sign up.

On the race management side, the proceedings afloat will be led by the highly experienced and regarded Barry O’Neill, who has experience in running league sailing as he has run a number of events for the Swiss Sailing League in Geneva during 2023.

Barry is bringing his team with him to ensure maximum success for sailors. Emmet Dalton of Howth Yacht Club will be taking charge of umpiring duties keeping the hotly contested racing fair and within the rules.

If you or your club are curious and would like to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch at
