The new Dublin Bay J99 Juggerknot II has withdrawn from the Sovereign's Cup on the eve of the Kinsale Yacht Club regatta.

The Royal Irish contender, skippered by Andrew Algeo, although entered for the south coast Grand Prix will not compete tomorrow.

In a packed 2019 racing calendar, the new marque debuted in Spi Ouest in April and has already taken in the  2019 ICRA Nationals and the Dun Laoghaire Dingle Race, both in June.

It will be disappointing news for Kinsale's Class One IRC as the withdrawal weakens its already small fleet. Read our 2019 Sovereign's Cup preview here.
