The fantastic new decking area at Waterford Harbour Sailing Club is now complete and open for use by members, visitors, local groups and clubs. It unfortunately is weather dependant but we are very luck to have spectacular views from this area and now with the financial support of the Brexit Adjustment Reserve.
It was our aim when we commenced this project to renew and refresh the area so that we could safely use the decking area above the clubhouse and to take advantage of the space. We have missed over the previous few years the visiting yachts to the harbour area and our club and it is with this investment and works combined with future advertising of our facilities that we hope to attract new visitors on a regular basis to the harbour, our club and the village of Dunmore East in general.
We very much appreciate the financial assistance of the Brexit Blue Economy Enterprise Development Scheme and the financial assistance that came with that enabling us to bring this project to this stage. We now plan to further develop the area by creating a new balcony area, new entrance including updated disabled access and refurbishment of the stairs and exterior of the building. This will take time but we are already seeing the increased turnover and positive reaction from visitors and hope to continue the momentum throughout the Winter and for the years to come.
WHSC hosts several Regional & National events this season.
On the 1st & 2nd of July we host the Optimist Munsters – With an expected 120+ competitors taking part in 2 full days of racing, this is sure to be a lively event.
On the 19th & 20th August we welcome back the 420’s for the Irish Nationals – We expect these double hander, performance racers, to be super competitive as they fight to become the Irish Champions.
On the 21st, 22nd & 23rd September WHSC hosts the 1720 Nationals – The last 1720 event here, in Dunmore East, was 2 years ago and proved to be fantastic both on & off the water. These high energy Sports Boats return this year and we expect this to be an event not to miss.read more
