Welcome to the Dublin Bay Area of the Old Gaffers Association website.

The Howth 'Pier House Cup’ Event' - October

Unfortunately we had to cancel this year’s event – we were unable to arrange a convenient date for crews before the onset of the autumnal weather.

As members will be aware this event and the party afterwards in the Abbey Tavern is amongst our most exciting events of the season. So it’s regrettable but we can try to make amends by making our Winter Talks Series a success and a focus for sailing interest and also for some good socialising thrown in.
