October league week 4 Final results (Posted 04Nov13)
Hi to all members,
As the season comes to a close for another year we were lucky with the gods and had superb weather for our October League. Congratulations to Colin Barry, Nicholas O'Leary and Richie Harrington for their win in Class 1, Billy Duane for his win in Class 2, David Hyland and Harry Durkin in the Feva Class, Peter Hyland won the Oppie Bronze Fleet and Emily Crotty won the Oppi Copper Fleet. The league was sponsored by both Primeline Logistics - thanks to John Crotty and Brendan Dunlea and Brian Hogan of Anderco who presented a host of hats to all Optimist sailors for the effort they made.
I would like to thank all the helpers we had over the month, I won't name all of them as I have counted 26 people that came onto the water with us, needless to say you all know how much it is appreciated. The number of sailors we had on the water was fantastic which goes to show how the club is growing and thriving at the moment - on our first day we had a total of 86 sailors partaking in 51 boats, The prize giving was great fun for both young and old and the atmosphere was definitely one of fun and laughs. Thanks to Nicholas for all of his culinary skills at the BBQ and all of the bar staff that were kept on their feet until late in the night.
See you all soon,
Ciaran Mc Sweeney

Optimist update (Posted 02Oct13)
Dear Optimist Parents,
Last weekend saw the final race in the Optimist September League which was sponsored by DW Utility Services Ltd. We had about 10 optimists racing over the course of the month which was a good turn out. The next league to look forward to is our October league, sponsored by Primeline Logistics, which commences this Saturday 5th October with a FG at 1330 and weather permitting, we will run two races each day over the course of 4 Saturdays. I would love to see as many kids who are capable to make an effort to join the league and again for this league, we will be coaching all children around the race course as per regatta fleet rules. Please note that there will be a prize giving in the evening on Saturday 26th October.
With regards to the Sunday morning sessions, we have (again weather permitting !) 3 more sessions left, the final one being on Sunday 20th October. There has been a great turn out for the Autumn 2013 sessions with approximately 15 oppies on the water each weekend. The Optimist feet is growing strong in MBSC and the kids are having great fun. The fleet has been divided in to different groups, Copper & Bronze, for training purposes and has proven to be a great success. We have 26 optimists lying on the sand quay now so it would be wonderful to see as many of them out as much as possible for the final few weeks - with the weather getting colder please make sure that all children are dressed appropriately.
Finally, this year we are going to mark the end of the sailing season with a junior DISCO for all sailors that took part in our Sunday sessions, league racing & sailing courses.... so get those costumes ready and the dancing shoes on for our Halloween Disco. Spot Prizes on the night.. ! All sailors aged 7-12 yrs are welcome from 7.30-9.30 on Thursday 31st October. Cost €3.00 and all children will be supervised. The bar upstairs shall be open if parents choose to wait, as children will not be allowed to exit the building without parental supervision prior to the end of the disco.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries,

September League Weekend 2 (Posted 10Sept13)
Tomorrow we start a very busy day/weekend on the water:
The Optimist fleet will have their first gun at 13:00 for their September League. The fleet has been split by our instructors into two fleets; copper and bronze. Ruth will be on the sandquay and on the water to run the two races for the day. Please come early to prepare your boat and your kids.
The National 18 Donnelly trophy race is being hosted by MBSC with first gun at 14:00 and is a three race format. This will be followed by prize giving and a BBQ in the club from 16:30 on so as to allow some of our visitors to have a quick bite before sailing home.
Class 1 & 2 September League continues tomorrow with a first gun also at 14:00.
The cruisers are to race for the Tony Canny Trophy with a first gun at 14:00 and are asking "ALL" skippers to make the start line for the event. Following the racing all crews will follow onto the club to the BBQ arranged by Ewen Barry and John Hegarty.
Sunday morning again sees our youngest sailors hit the water at 10:30 for more optimist training. Please ensure your kids are appropriately dressed for this time of year as it is a long morning on the water. Arrive early and eager for all to enjoy the social scene that has developed around these morning sessions.
September League Weekend 1
Hi to all members again,
We started our September League on Saturday last with a few changes to the normal routine. Our Feva sailors have combined with our friends in RCYC for the first three weeks of the league so we are going to award finishing places that they obtain while racing over there. The last Feva race will take place in the bay as normal on the 29th. Our Class 1 fleet was a little low on numbers for reasons varying from the Cobh to Blackrock Race to parents travelling with our Feva fleet - hopefully our numbers will come back to normal for next weekend.
We are running a new Oppie September League which we hope will better prepare our younger sailors for their travel to Kinsale for the Southern's at the end of the month, we hope to have four boats travelling for the event.
The Oppie training re-commenced on Sunday morning and I was delighted to see so many boats on the water, thanks to Ruth and her team for the effort. The format here has also changed slightly to better utilise our coaches where a more dedicated view is being made to help our fleet not only better enjoy the sessions but also to encourage the development of a racing fleet which is ultimately the goal for all of the kids.
Thanks to Ruth Mc Sweeney, Debbie Power and John O'Keeffe for their help with rescue and AOD on Saturday afternoon.
The cruisers had a great day both on and off the water while racing for the Sea-Hennessy Trophy which will be awarded at the laying up supper. Prizes on the day went to Mick Coughlan, Sean Mc Carthy and Mick Mulcahy.
Please note that this year our September League is being sponsored by DW Utility Services Ltd.
See you all on the water next weekend.

August roundup - Back to School
The club has just had a fantastic week on the water with more racing than you could shake a stick at. The week kicked off with the conclusion of our August League which is really seeing an increase in numbers month by month.
John Moynihan won Class 1 after a great battle over the month with his sister Judy - it all came down to the last race which kept everyone guessing to the finish. In Class 2 David Hyland and Charlie Maloney took a pretty convincing win with an impressive run of results.
The 1720 Nationals kicked off on Thursday and raced under the watchful eye of the race officer Keith Mac Keown. It was a very very close run event with a staggering O'Leary 1,2,3 result - it took Anthony a while but he showed the boys exactly how to win races.
The weekend carried on with the National 18 South Coasts taking place both inside and outside the harbour. Peter Crowley was the OD for the event which saw Ewen Barry, Dion Barrett and Stan Browne take first place while Ronan Kenneally, Ewen Kiely and Robbie O'Sullivan took 3rd - a great showing for the club.
We had 9 boats travel to the RCYC At Home mixed dinghy event which gave us two great days of viewing. Three oppie's also raced for the weekend and James Hassett took a brilliant 2nd place in his fleet. Closer to home the Guy Perram Trophy was raced for and awarded to his dear friend Tom Mc Sweeney who spoke with great fondness of the memories he has of their time sailing together.
The clubhouse was alive on Saturday night with a great mix of all sailors from all fleets for a fantastic barbeque organised by our Commodore John Crotty.
I really hope that our September League will see as many of you on the water as possible - the racing is getting better by the month and the enthusiasm of our younger sailors is electric so lets keep it going and enjoy it as much as possible.
See you on the water,
P.S. Don't forget that the Cobh to Blackrock race is on this weekend and will count towards the League. The Optimist Sunday sessions also recommences on Sunday morning at 10:30 so a nice early start for some if us.

John Crotty what a legend (Posted 27May13)
John Crotty proved his all round sporting
prowess at the Golden Oldies Festival at Crosshaven yesterday. Having
taken a break from rugby in 1983 he returned to the pitch yesterday and
scored 5 tries. In the process he raised €1,300 for the Irish Heart
For those who think this is a wind up, see the attached video where he chips the defence and then uses his pace to get the touchdown first. Well done John.

OD for the night Alan Fleury ran a long race with no mercy shown (The blue flag stayed in the hut). The breeze was good and steady at about 12kts until just before the finish when it blew up to 18kts.
Class 1& 2 May league Week 2
Sailing on a Thursday night in forecast gales in Monkstown Bay? Surely not! The South coast may have be battening down the hatches this evening but on the Sand quay in Monkstown there were eight eager Class 2 sailors awaiting a race so who were we to deny them.
OD for the night Alan Fleury assisted by Sean Mc Carthy and Debbie Power ran 2 races for the enthusiastic up and coming future of our club. While tides were strong and winds were a little blustery on occasion all boats completed both races without injury or damage, there may have been one or two crews got a little wet but apparently the water was lovely and not the slightest bit cold!!
Our Class 1 sailors will have to return to the sand quay next week with more vigor so as not to be shown up by the skill and eagerness of our younger members.
Results to follow tomorrow.
Class 1 & 2 May league Week 1
Sailing has got off to a fantastic start in the bay so far this season, from our 1720's & National 18's April league, to our class 1 and 2 dinghies now back racing every Tuesday and Thursday night. We had a great start last Tuesday night with 5 class 1 and 2 class 2 boats on the first night of the season. This was followed on Thursday night by a mixed fleet of 6 - the great sign was that it was not all the same sailors from Tuesday so numbers are good. As the East Ferry cup was cancelled last Saturday the National 18's held a new "not the East Ferry Cup race" in the bay to provide a day on the water for those that needed some water in the bones. OD David Barry ran 4 races in brilliant conditions in the bay - footage and photos are here on the site for all to see with more photos to follow.
Tonight we had to unfortunately cancel racing for class 2 but a very enthusiastic bunch from class 1 took to the water for what was later described as "fun- tiring and blind from salt because of the speed". Four class one boats had 2 races in lively conditions and we had a Feva with a very advanced coach passing on his knowledge to two up and coming class 2 sailors.
All results from the league will follow tomorrow on the site. I am asking again for any interested people to contact me in relation to assisting with racing for the season. (Results here)

Photography workshop captures 1720 sailing (Posted 13Apr2013)
Renowned international photographer Rick Tomlinson,
who has shot in the most stunning locations around the world – from the
Arctic to the Antarctic – to the Caribbean – graced Monkstown Bay with
his presence last weekend (6 & 7 April), as part of a 2 day
photography workshop organised by RCYC.
In keeping with our erratic weather conditions, Saturday was sunny, but windless. But like the talented sailor who will always find a result in light airs, the lack of wind did not stop Rick, or his participants from capturing some of the racing action at Monkstown, as well as taking time to shoot some beautiful reflective shots at Drake’s Pool in Crosshaven.
Sunday was wild with gusty easterlies whipping up the sea at Monkstown and we arrived just in time to catch the last leg or two of MBSC’s 1720 Sunday league. Great day on the water!" (Cathy Mullan)

sailing in Tenerife
O’Beirne, RSGYC, was recently contacted by Barbara Murray, who is based
in Tenerife and is heavily involved in sailing (IOC Judge).
is currently the International Secretary of the Laser Class association
and some of you may have met her while in Ireland during the past year
as a Juror in our Youth Nationals and the ISAF's.
Barbara has proposed facilitating a TY programme in Tenerife this year. While the notice period for the trip is unfortunately very short we are going to see if we can pull it off as we have a number of people already committed. As Barbara is also a teacher (from Co. Wicklow) she would incorporate French and Spanish lessons in the programme in the mornings. Read More
