Thank You from Foynes Yacht Club


We were delighted to have sixteen J24’s gather for this event.

Congratulations to the entire fleet who sailed in the challenging conditions, and a special congratulations to our new J24 Western Champion JP McCaldin Lough Erne / Sligo Yacht Club in the Gold Fleet and the HYC K25 Team Howth Yacht Club winning the Silver Fleet.

A big thanks to our sponsors – Yachtsman Euromarine, BCS Crane Hire Ltd, North Sails, UK Sailmakers, Quantum Sails, Cliffords Cash & Carry Gala Supermarkets, our PRO Raymond McGibney & OOD Geoff O’Donohuge (NRO) and the MEMBERS of Foynes Yacht Club who gave up their time to fall into duties on the committee boat, mark boats, safety boats, coach boat, registration, breakfast and the bar.

Thank you to all who called, sent txt messages & emails after the event. We very much appreciate feedback and comments. Our members also commented on what a friendly, easy-going group the J24 sailors are.
