The clubhouse is to have a trophy display cabinet, and all our major silver will be displayed in the cabinet for everyone to admire 🙂
Would all members who currently have race trophies at home please bring them along to Paul McSorley, Sailing Secretary, who will arrange to have them engraved and put on display.
For those that may have been thinking of a trip to the Dublin Boat Show in May, the ISA has just advised that the show has been postponed until February 2012, and will be in RDS.

The Opening Day Lunch on Sunday was thoroughly enjoyed by the large numbers of members who attended in fine sunshine.
Many thanks to Kerry, who managed to cater for us all with a delicious lunch, even though the numbers were rather more than we anticipated!
Here is Roise McSorley’s fine poem, for which she won a prize from the Commodore.
The summer cruise
‘Whoosh’, goes the waves against our boat,
I finally realise we are afloat,
I need to get up to find my coat.
‘Flap’, goes the sails in the breeze,
We are once again on the high seas,
I must wrap up before I freeze.
‘Creek’, goes the tiller as we set our course,
I better stop shouting before I am hoarse,
The whining wind is like a wild horse.
‘Poop’, is the sound of the fog horn,
In the mist of the early morn,
I really wish I was home and warm!
By Roise McSorley.
