Five Royal Irish yachts won free entry into July's Volvo Dun Laoghaire regatta following a draw from 180 'Super Early Bird entries' this week. In total 18 boats won the free entry prizes ranging from dinghies to IRC cruisers.
Among the winners are locals Peter Beamish's Beneteau 31.7 Camira, Ian Bowring's Sigma 33 Springer from the Royal St. George and the National Yacht Club Mermaid dinghy, Tiller Girl (Jonathan O'Rourke). Boats from outside the bay were also in luck including Christine Murray's IRC Cruiser Triple Elf from the Clyde Cruising Club and Mark Thompson's IRC Offshore entry Aquaplane from Pwllheli Sailing Club.
