SRL Frostbite Open Dinghy Series

Sunday was the last day of our SRL Frostbite Open Dinghy Series!! A bit breezy at times with a few going for a dip, but overall a great day’s racing! Being the season that was in it, there was a prize for the best Christmas Outfit. This brought great excitement with everybody getting into the spirit of Christmas, and the winners were – the Joyce family – well deserved!!

Thanks to OODs: Donal McCormack and Raymond McGibney, our Mark Layers, Safety Crew, Shore Crew, and the ladies who provided the much welcomed soup and rolls every Sunday. A huge thank you to Mary McCormack, Class Captain, who organised a great event and got our Dinghy fleet back on the water after a two year break!! A massive thank you also to Bev Lowes of Silver Refrigeration Ltd for sponsoring the event, and thanks to our travelling boats from Killaloe who always support this event.

Congratulations and well done to all our Competitors and a massive CONGRATULATIONS to our WINNERS which are as follows:

CLASS 1: 1st Dylan Reidy (FYC), 2nd David Coleman & Govan (KSC), and 3rd Killian Reidy & Conor Daly (FYC)

CLASS 2: 1st Kate O’Regan (FYC), 2nd Ivan Joyce (FYC), and 3rd Brendan O’Regan (FYC)

That about wraps it up for this year’s Dinghy sailing. Looking forward to seeing you all back on the water in 2022!

Wishing you all a very happy and safe Christmas.
