RNLI Awards

Howth Sailing and Boating Club were recognised at an awards ceremony held by the charity recently at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park.

It was a very special occasion at this year’s RNLI Annual Presentation of Awards as it marked the 190th anniversary of the charity that saves lives at sea and on inland waters. The awards recognise fundraising and operational volunteers from across Ireland for their role in raising funds and awareness for the RNLI and in doing so supporting the volunteer lifeboat crews in their work.

Guest of honour for the occasion was RNLI chairman, Charles Hunter-Pease, who handed out awards to 61 volunteers. Other attendees included the British Ambassador to Ireland Dominick Chilcott CMG, Commodore Hugh Tully, Flag Officer Commanding the Naval Service, Breda Collins, Chairperson of Irish Water Safety and Yvonne Shields, Chief Executive of the Commissioners of Irish Lights.

Howth Sailing and Boating Club received a Record of Thanks and Commodore John Craddock collected this award. The club have been long standing supporters of the RNLI in Howth. due particularly to the continuing efforts of Mr Frank Whelan who oversees an annual barbecue and donate the funds raised from this event to Howth lifeboat station. This years donation was €1400.




From day trips to extended weekends they travel as far as the wind and weather will allow, occasionally in company with the cruising association of Ireland

While racing brings out the competitive streak in all of us the club tries to encourage less experienced members to have a go, safety of our crews and their precious boats being the number one priority.

New members


We are actively looking for new members and would encourage anyone interested in getting some sailing experience to email John Craddock who will arrange a wednesday night introductory sail.

This will give you a chance to see the club in action, meet some of our members, and see if the HSBC can fill your needs.
