All NSYS members

The annual Kinsale YC race / weekend is fast approaching. This year boats from MBSC will join us on our race to Kinsale on FRIDAY the 24th August. On Saturday the 25th MBSC, KYC and NSYS boats will race back to the Naval Base. A perpetual trophy for first place (NSYS BOAT) for the Friday race  has been commissioned by Mr. Tom McSweeney (enter and you could be the first ever winner...) of MBSC and of course the Saturday race has the Mary P trophy sponsored by Neil of KYC. This year is the 30th anniversary of of the Mary P trophy.

The following IMPORTANT information should be noted.

1. An entry fee for each boat of €10 is applicable and covers entry to both races/cruises.
2. Food in KYC will be available, but it is up to each boat to make their own arrangements
3. A b-b-q will be held at the Naval Base, Wardroom, on Saturday, from 1800hrs. the cost is €15 per person and TICKETS MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVAVCE (NLT Tuesday 20th August) Tickets will NOT be available on the night, and regrettably no ticket-no food. PLEASE book your tickets early so we can plan for the correct numbers and avoid any losses to our finances, disappointment or confusion on the evening. Tickets/Reservations can be made through committee members - Squadron Secretary / Sailing Secretary. All are welcome at the bbq / wardroom, even if you can't make the sailing - just book early!!!
4. There are no marina fees for NSYS boats in Kinsale on the Friday night.
5. NSYS members are asked to berth alongside ships in the basin on Saturday, and leave marina berths free for visiting KYC & MBSC boats. Visitors will vacate berths between 0900-1200 on Sunday morning.
6. There will be musical entertainment in KYC on the Friday evening and in the Wardroom on Saturday evening.

This is a great weekend of sailing and entertainment. It is one of the flagship events for OUR squadron, and a good turn out of 'home' boats will enhance the occasion further. Please take part, book early and help out on the weekend by assisting when and where required.

The NSYS / MBSC race on Friday is provisionally scheduled to start at 1330 (start line by Spit Bank light). Confirmation and further details closer to the date.

Support your Squadron, see you on the water
