Classic Boat

Dublin Bay revival

ork on rebuilding seven Alfred Mylne-designed Dublin Bay 21s continues, . The first boat, , was completed by Kilrush Boatyard and launched into the Shannon estuary in December, with the second, , set to follow by the time this issue is published. Construction of the third and fourth boats is under way and due for completion early next year. The new hulls are of veneered cedar-strip using the ballast keels of the original boats, which raced from 1903 to 1986 in Dublin Bay – from where they also occasionally cruised to the Isle of Man and Scotland. Their rigs, gaff sloop with no topsail, match Mylne’s modified 1917 design. All seven boats will be owned by the class association and will be available to sail by invited guests, mainly at their base in Dublin Bay, but also overseas, as the boats are easily transportable in containers.
