Cardiff Yacht Club Regatta 2007
Over the years the dinghy section has enjoyed a healthy relationship with Cardiff University, whose sailing club enjoy the use of CYC and share the dinghy section compound. Many students now own private dinghies and are members of the dinghy section itself. During the term time, various RYA courses are offered to section members and the University Magno, Buzz and Firefly fleet can be seen regularly out on the bay. Cardiff Yacht Club Clubhouse CYC dinghy section and CBYC Dinghy Section, with which we share the bay, run a joint racing series, enhancing our fleet sizes and halving our resource usage. We sail every Sunday morning (2 races), with the first race starting at 10:30 and as the sun stays out longer, every Wednesday evening (usually 2 races), first race starting at 19:00. See our racing page for more details.
