Ireland’s biggest sailing event returns this Summer, with the 2019 Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta.
The biennial four-day series will take place from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th July 2019, at the waterfront and Dun Laoghaire town.
The four local waterfront yacht clubs will come together for this sailing extravaganza; Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club, National Yacht Club, Royal Irish Yacht Club and Royal St. George Yacht Club.
2,500 sailors and 500 boats across 34 classes will compete in the 8th installment of the four day series on seven race courses will be specially laid out on Dublin Bay.
The standard of sailing on show is bound to entertain and excite the crowds, due to its international flavour.
The event attracts Olympic, international and national talent, many of whom are champions, with yachts competing from Hong Kong, England, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, and all four provinces of Ireland.
On land, there will also be plenty of entertainment around the waterfront.
This year, face painting and a ‘selfie wall’ will ensure you capture your perfect picture from the day. Volvo and Spirit Motor Group will also be displaying their latest range of cars at The People’s Park, the East Pier and the Harbour Plaza.
There will be delicious market food to sample from the People’s Park Market on Sunday 14th July. And we all know a trip to the seaside is not complete without a 99 ice cream, and they don’t come tastier than Teddy’s!
