The Royal Irish Yacht Club is looking forward to formally welcome all competitors and their families at the opening ceremony at 5:30pm on Wednesday 16th August.  

Paralympian sailor Dr Austin O’Carroll will lead a flotilla of ribs with a delegation of competitors across the harbour to the club.  The remaining competitors, their families and guests are welcome to watch the flotilla from the breakwater beside the club.  The competitors on the breakwater will then parade back to the club and be welcomed by the Commodore, IODAI, sponsors and special guests.  We will have some flags and banners… bring along your club burgees!  

A complimentary barbeque for all competitors will follow.  Parents and guests may purchase from the barbecue.
