Danske Bank Icebreaker
**Icebreaker Christmas Dinner, Dec 16th 2018 – tickets now available for booking**
Ballyholme Yacht Club is pleased to launch the Danske Bank Icebreaker Series 2018/19. Now in its fourth decade, this event attracts a range of sailors from all over Belfast Lough. Commencing on Sunday, September 30th and continuing each Sunday until 16th December. Part 1 will consist of 12 races(***now finishing on Dec 23rd due to bad weather at the start of the series***). After a short break over Christmas and New Year, Part 2 commences on Sunday, 3rd February 2019. One race will be run on each day.
Entry is open to dinghies and multihulls, who otherwise would have limited opportunity to race during the winter. Olympian and RYA High Performance Manager Matt McGovern commented “Ballyholme Icebreaker Series is a real highlight in the winter sailing calendar. It offers great quality racing in large fleets every Sunday. Personally I can’t wait to dust off the hiking pads and get out there myself in the laser class this year.”
In a change from former years, there will be no charge for entering the Danske Bank Icebreaker Series 2018/19. Visiting boats will be accommodated at BYC for a small fee. This is in order to encourage a large entry. For those sailors with limited racing experience, BYC will be offering adult training on Saturday afternoons for members and visitors to help them build confidence for a competitive environment.
Michael Keenan, Private Banker with Danske Bank, was keen to add that Danske are pleased to continue their support of the “Icebreaker Sailing Series” for 2018/2019. “It is fantastic to see so many people from all areas of the province turning out each week to compete in this event. It’s especially pleasing to see so many young individuals out competing, and many have their parents also out sailing on the same race course. We wish Ballyholme Yacht Club continued success again this season.”
