Flying Fifteen Championships of Ireland 2018

Friday 31st August 2018: Deloitte has been confirmed as a new sponsor of the Flying Fifteen Championships of Ireland 2018, hosted by the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire from 28th to 30th September.

With great numbers turning out for club racing in recent months it is expected that there will be a large turnout at September’s event and, with just a year to go before the World Championship take place at the same Dun Laoghaire venue, there may even be some visitors from overseas. Dublin Bay is recognised as a top class sailing venue, and with Jack Roy - international and Olympic pro, as well as Irish Sailing President - on the bill as race officer, the day will not be short on quality race management and expertise.

As usual in this competitive fleet, where the racing is always close and exciting, it will be hard to predict the Championship’s winner and any of a number of crews could win.

Speaking ahead of the event Ronan Beirne, Commodore of the National Yacht Club said: “We are very much looking forward to seeing some great racing over the course of the weekend against the beautiful backdrop of Dun Laoghaire Harbour, and wish to thank our new sponsors Deloitte for their support.”

David Dalton, Consulting Partner at Deloitte said: “We are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Deloitte Flying Fifteen Championships of Ireland 2018, especially at such an exciting time, in the build-up to next year’s World Championship. Sailing is a sport that requires commitment and discipline, both of which are key to our values at Deloitte.”

Ahead of the action in Dun Laoghaire, the first week of September sees a fleet of six boats from the National Yacht Club heading to compete at the Flying Fifteen European Championships in Lake Garda, Italy.
