Ciara Peelo and Mary O’Loughlin have decided to organise an optimist reunion. The get-together will be in Malahide Yacht Club (James Terrace) on Saturday October 12th. There will be food and of course the bar will be open for a few drinks.
The idea is to get as many sailors from the 70s, 80s, 90s for a catch up. This is aimed at anyone who sailed optimists during this time. As everyone will have been quite young then, parents were a very important part of Optimist sailing and many parents made great friends during this time so all parents are invited along too.
There will be a small cost of €20 to cover the food.
Also if there is interest, the club has offered us the use of their Topaz’s in order to run a small regatta on the Saturday, just for fun. If anyone is interested in doing this can you please contact Ciara (details below).
Malahide Yacht Club has undergone a major overhaul in the last couple of years and there is now a brand new clubhouse in the Broadmeadows which is well worth a visit for those who froze or got electrocuted in the old place.
For those who sailed during the 90s Harte will be there on the night and is looking forward to seeing everyone.
