The 300–mile race along the Irish coastline is a great mini-offshore challenge for cruisers and racing boats racing in separate divisions under IRC. Dingle provides a wonderful finishing location for crews and visiting friends and families.
The 2019 race is also on the RORC and ISORA race calendars and offers boats in those series to accumulate qualifying offshore racing experience for crews participating in the RORC Fastnet Race in August.
"The 2019 race is on the RORC and ISORA race calendars"
The timing of the 2019 race is designed so boats participating in the ICRA IRC Nationals in Dun Laoghaire (June 7 – 9) can use the race to get south in time for Sovereigns Week in Kinsale (June 26 – 29) and then be back in Dun Laoghaire for the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta (July 11 -14).
The Notice of Race is now available to download at www.d2drace.ie and entries can be made online via the website here.
