The RWYCI will now be holding its AGM at 20:00 hrs in the Haven Arms in Kilrush on Friday February 20th. Please come along and help us to further develop the Club and aid its mission to nurture sailing in all formats at Kilrush Marina, the Shannon Estuary and the West Coast of Ireland.
We have many exciting projects in the pipeline for 2015 and 2016. Our 2015 calendar will commence with a May Series set of races every Sunday for White Sails (No Spinnakers, Echo Handicap). We should see our Dinghy Sailors out on the water in April with some developments like the recent purchase of Mirror Sailing Dinghies plus the addition of the Clubs own Wayfarer 3 Man Dinghy for hands-on instruction. Yachts will be competing in Foynes and Fenit events during the year. WIORA will be held in Galway from 22nd to 25th of July and as well as there being a large contingent of IRC Yachts competing, the GBSC plan some good racing for cruising yachts in White Sails. In August we plan the Glin Castle Race on Saturday 22nd and we plan to hold a very exciting October Series with financial support from L & M Keating Maritime with yachts coming from Foynes, Fenit, Galway and Clifden to compete. The club also plans to develop 1m international Class Model Yacht Racing during the winter months, more on this exciting development later.
To run all of these events and also to plan our own WIORA in 2016 plus the Viking Challenge on Scattery, we need a very pro-active committee; so please come along and support our efforts by becoming directly involved in the future.
