The 16 invitees for next month's All Ireland Sailing Championships have been announced for the National Yacht Club hosted event.

Racing over October 5th & 6th, seven dinghy and nine keelboat helms will race in Flying Fifteen keelboats for the coveted ISA 'Champion of Champions title.

There are no current Tokyo Olympic trialists and only one helmswoman among the line-up released by the national governing body today.

Although present last year, absent from the 2019 line up is the 1720, IDRA 14 and Dragon classes. 

Other Clinker classes do fare well, however, with representation from Mermaids, Shannon One Designs and Water Wags all scheduled to compete at Dun Laoghaire.

See the invitee list below and the NOR is attached below.

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.
