July 3rd – 4th, 2021 

Notice is hereby given of the 2021 Goose Island  

Regatta to be sailed under the burgee of the Lough  

Derg Yacht Club, Saturday and Sunday July 3rd-4th. This  

will be a sociable event involving Geese and Islands,  

organised by the crews of S167, S142 and S144. 

Rules: C19 rules apply, especially for picnics and BBQ: BYO!  

Registration: none. Show up, rig and be ready to sail at 1130hrs each day; also bring a sense  of humour and €10 to enter 

Briefing: will be adjacent to the bar on Friday evening, pints in hand at half past; or maybe  quarter to. No tricky questions please; and the tide will be ebbing. 

Racing: we shall be re-purposing the islands and shoreline this year; expect to be sailing to  distant places on the lake where you never before dared to go. 

Sustenance: since the fleet are ‘off-shore’ you’ll need to bring your own picnic and  refreshments. Sun cream and bathers are recommended. 

Courses: will be hailed off Barbarossa, perhaps drawn on a board, and then uploaded to the  cloud. Or just follow us. 

Eligibility: this event suits fully grown immature adults; we hope to see all the Derg SODs and  Squibs out on the water. It’s an opportunity to invite new sailors into your boat if you’re short of crew. Use the WhatsApp groups to recruit please; Shannons to sail 3-up, so please get the  word out early. 



It is not permitted to use the C word or V word during this event 

Competitors who infringe the rules or aren’t nice to their friends will be asked to pivot  twice; this replaces doing turns 

Protests will be heard over a virtual platform in October at The Wolf Regatta; those  involved will be invited to hop on and hop off throughout that weekend until they say  sorry and buy a round of drinks. What goes on in the room will stay in the room. 

Regatta Dinner: we’re lighting the big club BBQ when we get back to the Club and the bar will  be open! You do the cooking; bring your plates, cutlery, meat, salads, etc. Expect an artistic challenge, recitations from ‘Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes’, and other  games later.
