The Royal Alfred Yacht Club Superleague series for keelboats was revived in 2012. This series combines the results of the five Dun Laoghiare Regattas with five designated Dublin Bay Sailing Club race days.

With 10 days racing in the series, with the six best counting for the final results, the SuperLeague has proved to be a successful and engaging addition to the Dublin Bay Sailing Club’s programme of summer racing. Without adding to an already crowded sailing calendar, the RAYC Superleage provides a summer-long series, adding an extra frisson of interest to racing in Dun Laoghaire.

The spread of ten races with a generous four discards meant that for this revived edition, almost 60 boats took part, a good percentage of the yachts that race on a regular basis. In most classes, winners winners were decided on the last or second last race of the series. However, “Supernova” was the clear leader from early on and never looked likely to give up their pole position. 

The Royal Alfred Yacht Club has attached particular importance to awarding Superleague prizes not only the Skipper but also to the crew of winning yachts. These small mementoes are a reminder to us all that without the efforts of the crew there would be very little activity in the Bay.

The Royal Alfred Yacht Club Superleague will be sailed again in 2013. A special effort will be made to persuade those classes that did not participate in meaningful numbers this year to join in this enjoyable extension to the racing programme.

The prizes will be presented at the RAYC Annual Black Tie Dinner in the National Yacht Club on Friday 30th November. All members and friends of the RAYC are welcome and booking can be made directly with Mr Tim O’Brien, the Club Manager at 2805725 or manager@nyc.ie
