This weekend sees perhaps the last of the 2017 season’s 'Major' open events on Dublin Bay in the form of the DMYC Kish Race on Sunday.

The warning signal will be at 10.55 a.m. from the Dublin Bay Hut on the West Pier and the intended course is Kish to Port, and back.

Afloat's report and photos from the 2016 race are here.

Unusually, the race is run on Scratch ECHO, providing two features, one being it is open to all comers and the organisers will find a handicap somewhere for all yachts, the other being, that well practiced crews who might have adjusted handicaps will find they can race on the boats original published rating.

'The emphasis is on participation for all suitable yachts, and the DMYC hopes to attract entries for racer, recreation and cruiser sailors alike, as the “cut and thrust” of racing is not a feature of the event, DMYC's Rear–Commodore Neil Colin told Afloat.ie

The event drew approximately 50 entries last year, and DMYC hopes to better this entry on Sunday. White Sails Classes (& non spinnaker) are especially welcome.

Entries can be made online here
