Welcome to the Drascombe Association's Irish website.
Next Event - Winter reunion at Malahide YC February 15th
The Irish Drascombe Owners' Association was set up in order to facilitate Drascombe Association (DA) members in the Euro Zone, whereby we can pay subscriptions and other fees without the hassle of sterling drafts. The Irish Drascombe Owner's Association is fully part of the DA, and is not limited to Drascombe Owners. The Secretary of the "Irish Drascombes" is Jack O'Keeffe, who can be contacted by using the "Contact us" link, or by post to 8 Wesley, Carrigaline, Co.Cork.
Members of the DA in Ireland receive the award winning quarterly magazine "DAN" and can share "simply sailing" for fun by rally participation and informal get-togethers. The DA also provides technical support through our main website forum, and access to competitive and flexible boat insurance from the Paidstow branch of Aston Scott Insurance.
In 2012 we had our biannual event in Baltmore, West Cork in August, and in June we had consecutive events in Carlingford and in Strangford. In mid September we had a great weekend in Lough Ree courtesy of LRYC with history and sailing during the day and music at night.
See "Recent Events" (Left) for more information on our events held during 2012, with links to photo galleries.
New members are always welcome, whether Drascombe owners or not.
Euro account holders may join the Drascombe Association by downloading a Euro Zone application form here completing it, signing it, and sending it to:
Jack O'Keeffe is acting as "Irish Membership Treasurer" and will collect subscriptions before the end of March and forward the sterling equivalent to the DA on behalf of members with euro accounts.
