Wicklow Sailing Club has written to competitors and supporters alike to fix the date of the 2020 Round Ireland race as Saturday, June 20 2020.

Ireland's classic 700-mile offshore race has been buoyed up by some bumper fleets over the last two editions and organisers are expecting to build-on this for the 2020 race. 

The biennial race is organised jointly with the Royal Irish Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire and the Royal Ocean Racing Club in London. The Round Ireland race forms part of RORC's overall Points Championships.

The defending champion is Niall Dowling of the Royal Irish YC who took both Line Honours and the Overall Win in with the Ker 43 Baraka GP in July.
