The Motor Yacht Club of Ireland
by Vincent Delany.

This is a modest booklet but it does describe an interesting period of yachting history from the demise of steam engines to the arrival of relatively reliable internal combustion engines which were often put into yachts which had completed their racing life. The book describes the coming of the outboard engine and the hydroplanes which exploited the potential of outboard engines. In many places in Ireland hydroplanes appeared before electricity.
If any members would like a copy of the book it is available from the author at delanyvincent@gmail.com for £16 including postage.
