Flying 15 Worlds website launched

 
The official website has been launched for the 2019 Flying Fifteen World Championships. The event is to be hosted by the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire, on the waters of Dublin Bay in Ireland.In what is truly an international event it is expected that up to 85 boats will compete with entries from as near as the UK, Europe and as far away as Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand where the most recent World Championships were held.As well as being a boost to the local economy it is hoped the event will increase interest in this exciting two man boat and will showcase Dublin Bay as a premier racing venue.

This 22nd World Championships coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the local Dun Laoghaire fleet and many of the founding fathers are sure to come out and marvel at how these boats have developed and are as exciting to sail as ever.

Arrangements are in place to assist in booking accommodation within walking distance of the club, and space for containers adjoining the club is available.

Irish Ferries offer discounts of up to 30% on standard UK fares. And on French Routes – Irish Ferries offer a 10% discount on their best publicly available rate.

The World Championship will run from from 2 - 13 Sept 2019. See the 2019 website here
