The whole VDLR team want to offer Peter Ryan our heart-felt congratulations on well deserved recognition for everything he does for Sailors around Dún Laoghaire, Dublin Bay, and the Irish Sea!

Peter Ryan is a dedicated sailing enthusiast – particularly for offshore racing – whose affable exterior camouflages the fact that his brain is busily whirring with ideas for improving the sport. Thus when the challenges of pandemic shutdown arose, he grasped the opportunities provided by being Chairman of the Irish Sea Offshore Racing Association, and having access to a generously donated consignment of Yellowbrick trackers, to set about devising a programme which would comply with regulations while still providing good sport.
