The biennial O’Leary Life & Pensions Sovereigns Cup to be sailed at Kinsale on June 21st has extended today’s entry deadline until next week.
Regatta organiser Mike Walsh has confirmed a 91–boat entry so far for the popular four–day south coast event. The deadline extension should see the regatta top 100–boats, especially as the Dun Laoghaire–Dingle offshore race has attracted a large fleet of 45 that will finish on the south-west coast a week before the Sovereign's Cup begins.
A new Kinsale Yacht Club 'Family Boat Award' will be presented by the O'Leary Life and Pensions sponsors as part of the regatta.
Walsh recently signalled a later start time for the biennial event starting on June 21st. The first gun has been pushed back to 1355 hrs to make it easier for sailors travelling down to Kinsale on the Wednesday morning.
