Yacht: Hera

Submit Information on this Yacht



Built by John Hilditch in Carrickfergus, Hera is one of the original five boats dating back to 1898.   She became part of the Dublin Bay fleet in 1919 and returned to Howth for the 1962 season after official racing for the class ceased in 1961.

Badly damaged in the ‘Long Shed’ on Howth’s East Pier following the worst effects of a winter storm in 1978, Hera was given new decks in 1979 restoring her to her former condition.
