As part of the 2017 bicentenary celebrations of Dun Laoghaire Harbour, next July's Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta will be hosting a special event for “Classic” yachts to compete for the Kingstown 200 Cup.
Details of the regatta are now published in the official Notice of Race downloadable below. First thoughts on the Classic Cup were given by W M Nixon on Afloat.ie here.
Feeder races for Dun Laoghaire's four day regatta have been planned from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the west coast of England.
Event Chairman Tim Goodbody says 'we have a number of National and Regional events within the overall regatta which makes it more attractive for many to travel and compete'.
All entries received and paid for in full by 31st December 2016 will automatically be entered into a Super Early Bird Prize Draw and 10% of these lucky people will have their entry fee refunded.
