The RSTGYC prize winners were Mariposa (Div 1A), Mary Kate (Div 1B) Mike and Ian Magowan, Chloe (Div 2) Kate and Guy O’Leary.

As Afloat reported previously, after the disappointment of the blowout of last weekend’s (June 25) RIYC Regatta, this weekend’s Royal St George big event on Saturday 2 July is much anticipated on Dublin Bay.

The George Regatta brings to a close the annual waterfront regattas for 2022 at Dun Laoghaire, which began on 12 June with the DMYC Regatta and was followed a week later by the Davy NYC Regatta.

Online entry is still available for the event, which comes with an equally packed onshore programme that promises a great day of fabulous food and family entertainment along with the excitement of racing on the water.
