Subaru is a quality brand and to endorse the National Yacht Club as "Vehicle partner" and for the Flying Fifteen World Championship hosted by the Club allows us to share the Subaru brand definition of "Confidence in Motion" as our members enjoy sailing and as the National Yacht Club prepares for the only World Sailing Championships to take place in Irish waters in 2019.’

The association with NYC adds to our growing portfolio of sponsorships that includes Dublin GAA, TG4 and Monkstown Hockey Club. We were delighted that two members from the All-Ireland winning Dublin football team, Con O’Callaghan and Eoghan O’Gara, joined us for the announcement in the National Yacht Club.
