Dublin Bay is an excellent venue for sailing. The horse-shoe shaped bay, open to the east and approximately six miles across, allows for fair racing. There is rarely one side of the course advantaged as the bay is large enough for racing to take place away from the influences of the shore.

Over the past number of years Dublin Bay has hosted many World and European Championships most recently the the KBC Laser Radial World Championships, ISAF Youth World Championship, Laser European and Optimist European Championships, Star European and Dragon World Championships.

Ireland’s top International & National Race Officers ensure excellent racing for all competitors over 9 race course areas in Dublin Bay and Howth.  Courses sailed may be as follows. Fixed mark, Triangle, Trapezpoid, Windward/Leeward, Day Inshore Courses. Racing runs on Thursday afternoon, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning with classes having between 6 and 10 races.

Classes are invited to host a championship within the Regatta and if interested should make contact with Ciara at the Event Office E; sec@dlregatta.org
