It is with regret that we are postponing Clinkerfest but given the circumstances we have no choice. We look forward to running the event next year instead. Let us hope we can get some Club sailing done in 2020! We hope you remain safe during these times and look forward to a time when we can all go sailing again. Wishing that you all stay well,
It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of Lough Ree Yacht Club to invite you to compete in Clinkerfest. The event is one of the Club’s flagship events designed to celebrate our Sestercentennial or 250th Anniversary of sailing on Lough Ree. Clinkerfest is a coming together of clinker built racing dinghies. The competing fleets are all competitively raced and to a very high standard with some having some of the largest one design racing fleets in the Country. Fun is a term generally associated with many of the fleets and whilst the racing will be to the highest standard, so will the entertainment and atmosphere after battle has been finished on the water. We will have a line-up of events ready for you over the course of the long weekend. We look forward to welcoming you to Lough Ree Yacht Club.
