Kinsale Yacht Club has 30 registered entries to date for its biennial Sovereign's Cup 2023 Regatta. 

One of the latest entries for the Simply Blue sponsored Cup from 21st to 24th June is George Sisk and Tim Kane's Dun Laoghaire-based Wow! 

The Royal Irish Yacht Club XP 37 Extreme will most likely join the coastal division like Ron O'Hanley of the New York YC with his Cookson 50, also one of the early entries for the West Cork event.

 Entries are coming in at a healthy rate for the 2023 Sovereigns, with the classes including the Europeans for the 1720s, which last year at Volvo Cork Week attracted a crack fleet of 42 boats, with the win going to the Crosshaven/Howth English/McDonald squad on Atara.
