In a big sailing week for County Wicklow, New York Yacht club has announced Kilbride's Mark Mills will design its brand new IC37 One-Design IC37 One-Design fleet, and tonight Wicklow Sailing Club will be awarded the coveted Mitsubishi Motors Ships Wheel Trophy at a special Irish Sailing Club of the Year ceremony at its South Quay clubhouse in Wicklow Harbour.

Best-known as the big-hearted little organisation which keeps the iconic Volvo Round Ireland Race show on the road with such style that it is now one of Europe’s premier events, with a stellar international entry list of 63 boats – many of them world famous – in June 2016. But where some other smaller clubs might find their own members’ sailing activities distorted or diminished through the voluntary organisational effort which is required to keep a biennial mega-event on this scale running smoothly, in Wicklow the reverse is true.
