Sovereign's Cup Regatta Director Tony Scannell has published the Notice of Race (downloadable below) for next June's 15th Cup for Cruisers, Coastal and White Sails fleets.

Scannell confirmed Kinsale Yacht Club is looking forward to welcoming everyone back to a 'full-strength' regatta in the town post-COVID.

The biennial regatta, one of the most important south coast regattas, will run from 21st to 24th June 2023, and, as Afloat reported previously, it will incorporate the 1720 sportsboat European Championships and has attracted a new sponsor.

The West Cork club confirmed the Blue Economy Project Developer, Simply Blue Group, headquartered in Cork, as the title sponsor, a welcome boost first announced by Scannell at the Cork Week 2022 prizegiving in July.
