The Royal North of Ireland YC is a fantastic venue and all visitors are assured of an extremely warm welcome and great racing and socials.  See RNIYC's website at

Sailing is in Belfast Lough and there are currently (in January 2019) 26 RS400s in the boat park!

2 races/day are scheduled, from Sunday 25 to Thursday 29 August. Prizes for Gold, Silver, Bronze fleets, first lady helm, first lady crew, first master, and grandmaster helms, and possibly others.   The sailors at the RNIYC also take daily 'Duckham' awards very seriously indeed.

Entry Fee
The entry fee is £195/boat for those entering (including making payment) before 28 July. The Youth entry (for helms under 22 at the start of the championship) is £175. This includes all your racing, a full social programme and two good quality event polo shirts.   There are no polo shirts and a £30 levy for those entering and paying after 28 July.   Enter now via this (Championship) website.

There will be Pre-Nationals Coaching on Saturday 24 August, for those who have not been able to sail as much as they wished during the period leading up to the nationals or are in need of some moral support. This must be booked in advance. The cost is £20/boat and must be booked when you enter, as spaces are limited.
