Prize Giving Review

The prize giving for DBSCs 131st season took place on the 13th November in the splendid surroundings of the RSGYC’s dining room, extended for the occasion into the adjoining ward room. It was a crowded, cheerful occasion during which 90 cups or trophies and over 500 pieces of glassware were handed over.

A notable feature of the event was the awarding of prizes to three generations of one family – the Goodbodys: the grandfather, Tim, whose Sigma 33 White Mischief invariably wins a raft of prizes during the Dublin Bay season; likewise son Richard’s Dragon Diva (partner Rick Johnson) and - for the first time - grandchildren Max and Georgia, who won the RS Feva prize in the recent September Junior Series.

Among the winners of the Club’s premier prizes were Colin Byrne’s Bon Exemple (The Brendan Ebrill Trophy), Conor Ronan’s Corby 26 Ruthless (best new boat) and Tom Murphy’s KI Dinghy no. 59 (best boat on dinghy course). Peridot (Jim McCann, Yannick Charrier, Paul Cadden, Hugh O’Donnell), won the Waterhouse Shield (most successful yacht in handicapped classes) and the Michael O’Connor’s SB20 Sin Bin won the George Arthur Newson Cup (best one-design boat) The Viking Award for a notable contribution to sailing went to Wendy Bass, the surviving member of the original Hut team who has been officiating at the West Pier for more than 40 years.
