Howth Yacht Club’s annual regatta takes place on Saturday 7th June with the traditional Lambay Races - sponsored by Citroen and its local dealer Tom Walsh Motors in Baldoyle - expected to attract its usual large fleet of up to 150 boats.

Racing will be provided for the largest number of classes – 15 – in the event’s history. An Offshore Committee Boat will start the races for Classes 0,1,2,3, Sigma 33, First 31.7, Shipman and White Sail Cruisers.

On the inshore course, one-design classes include Etchells, Puppeteers, Ruffian 23s, E-Boats, Squibs and Howth 17 Footers, while the SB3s will be given two windward-leeward races.

The ‘Lambay Lady Trophy’ will be awarded to the class winner with the largest time differential over the runner-up.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
