Brassed Off Cup – Good Friday, HYC

Howth Yacht Club’s annual Brassed Off Cup is being held on its traditional day of Good Friday, which falls on 19th April of this year. This fun Optimist dinghy event is a great opportunity for junior racers to dust off their gear and get out racing in Spring conditions on the safe waters just north of Howth harbour. It will also help many sailors sharpen their skills in preparation for the National Trials which take place in RCYC the following week.

Over the past few years, the Brassed Off Cup has developed into a very popular and well attended event in the Optimist sailing calendar, with more than 60 young sailors from across the country typically taking part. Three races are planned from 12 noon and the Notice of Race, Online Entry and Sailing Instructions are available here.
