A message from Timothy Goodbody, Chairman Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta 2017
I have great pleasure, on behalf of the four waterfront clubs, inviting you to join us for the 2017 Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta for a wonderful programme of racing and fun ashore. We are following our well proven format of four days racing, varied by request for some classes. This year the VDLR coincides with the bicentenary of Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
As before we appreciate the valuable and continued sponsorship of Volvo Car Ireland Ltd in partnership with the Spirit Motor Group, along with many premium sponsors, without whose support we could not run this great regatta.
As part of the bicentenary celebrations of Dun Laoghaire Harbour we will be hosting a special event for “Classic” yachts and dinghies to compete for the Kingstown 200 Cup. Feeder races are planned from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the west coast of England. We have a number of National and Regional events within the overall regatta which makes it more attractive for many to travel and compete.
We look forward to welcoming you, your families and friends to Dun Laoghaire next summer
With best wishes
