The club shall be called the Lough Foyle Yacht Club.


To encourage sailing on Lough Foyle and the promotion of social activities amongst members.


4 right of way race rules

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

The rules are designed to prevent collisions, at all times collision should be avoided.

Rarely there is anything said in this case. The boat on the run generally can see the boat who is beating up. The boat beating up is shouting at the wind and unlikely to be heard.

Shout out Starboard!

Shout “Starboard boat”

Shout Luff up! but steer a proper course.
