    LRYC Clinkerfest

    What normally is the Webb Regatta run the past few years by the O'Driscoll family for LDYC this year we are supporting our sister club Lough Ree Yacht Club's 250th Celebrations via their Clinkerfest Regatta.


    Lough Ree Yacht is celebrating its 250th Anniversary, as part of this year long celebration, Clinkerfest is to celebrate the Clubs long association with clinker constructed sailing craft. The concept is not that of a classic boat regatta but instead to demonstrate that such boats are still actively & competitively raced.

    All are welcome, plenty camping and accommodation available see the event page:
