Battle for the Bay 2017 is on this weekend!

Battle for the Bay returns this weekend (20th – 21st May) to the sandy shores of Dollymount Strand in Dublin. The two-day event is a unique celebration of Irish watersports with plenty of land action too and has grown year on year into a seriously enjoyable weekend by the coast.
