Dun Laoghaire Dingle Race Chairman Adam Winkelmann has named the date for the next edition of the biennial offshore race as Wednesday 9th, June 2021.

The 2021 280-mile race will start, as usual, from the National Yacht Club and Winkelmann says the race – now part of the Royal Ocean Racing Club calendar – will be limited to a 50 boat fleet following the success of this month's edition that attracted a record 43, including the biggest ever entrant, Windfall that set a new course record.

Previous entrants will be offered an early entry option in the race before entry is opened to others to allow up to a maximum of 50.
