As of mid-day today (Friday) there has been a late surge in entries for the Kish Race this Sunday which now stands at 34 yachts, ranging from Benetau 21.7’s, J 70’s to 40 Footers, with a Falmouth Working Boat mixed in for variety. There are also 7 Shipmans and several Ruffians all vying for “Bragging Rights” in their respective classes.

As Afloat.ie previously reported, entries are still open at www.DMYC.ie

The DMYC have been examining the weather forecasts closely. Rear Commodore Neil Colin told Afloat.ie  'they have varied greatly over the recent days, but hopefully the God of Wind (Eric) will oblige'.

This year’s overall prizes are unique Lazer cut ply images of the Kish - something very different for the trophy cabinet.
