Regatta Social Programme

The Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta is not just about the sailing, it is also about giving people the opportunity to embrace the lifestyle that is synonymous with sailing.

The Organisers and Waterfront Yacht Clubs will once again in 2019 be putting together an on shore program combining the excitement of world class sailing, great food, entertainment and vibrant people, engaging lifestyle entertainment and spectacular views of Dublin Bay. 

For competitors attending the Regatta for the first time we recommend you and your crews visit all of our 4 Waterfront Yacht Clubs over the weekend of the Regatta 11-14 July 2019.
