As part of the celebration of the Bicentenary of Dún Laoghaire Harbour – where the first stone was officially laid by the Viceroy of Ireland on 31st May 1817 – the Volvo Dún Laoghaire Regatta 2017 will be including a Classics, Traditional and Old Gaffers Association section. This will, in addition to putting extra emphasis on older classes already regularly involved (such as the Glens, the Dublin Bay Mermaids, the Howth 17 Footers, the IDRA 14s and the Water Wags), be extending a welcome to older boats of other types, and to classic classes from Ireland and around the Irish Sea.

An exciting programme has been put together for the Classics :
