After an absence of 8 years The Laser Nationals return to Dublin Bay in August 2012. The event will be hosted by the NYC and with strong local fleets a big turnout can be expected.
Dublin Bay is a great natural sailing venue but it has some tricky local conditions. Those hoping to compete in the Nationals could do worse than get some practice in during the Bay's regatta season.
This year the season runs over 5 consecutive weeks starting with the DMYC regatta on the 2nd June, RAYC on the 16th June, The NYC on 23rd June, RIYC on the 1st July and finally the RStGYC on the 7th of July.
To encourage participation and bigger fleets Local sailors Paul Keane and Richard Tate have organised a Dublin Bay Regatta League for the Laser Class. Participation in the league is free and the winner will have their class Nationals entry fee paid.
The league will work on the ranking system used by the Laser Class with each regatta result counting towards the overall placing.
