98 Yachts Sign Up to Compete for ICRA Honours – Current Entry List Here

#cruiserracing – The current entry of 98 boats for the ICRA National Championships at the Royal Irish Yacht Club (RIYC) (sorted by club below) reveals a wide distribution of entries from all over the Irish coastline and beyond. Although some areas are weaker than others (none from Kinsale for example), there are very few ports with no representation.

As forecast, the championships, a highlight of the sailing season, looks set to break the record of 125 entries previously set in Howth. Encouragingly, the entry a month ago stood at 42 but by April 30th  it had increased to 72 IRC cruiser and 17 white sails. Today it has risen by another nine boats for the June 13 event.

In a show of strength from Royal Irish hosts 35 club boats are entered, a third of the total entry so far.

Next biggest is Howth Yacht Club with 18 entries, RIYC neighbours, RSt.GYC have 11 and the National Yacht Club has seven.

There are some long distance travellers from Sligo and Foynes on the west coast and also visitors from Clwb Hwylio Pwllheli Sailing Club in Wales and the Clyde in Scotland.

In a further update to the list issued by ICRA this morning, another Welsh entry Converting Machine from Pwllheli has just entered leaving the event one boat away from the magic 100 mark

Yesterday, the cruiser racer body dropped plans to create a new handicap division at the bottom end of class 1 and the top of class 2 for its IRC national championships. It has also introduced a new means of policing its pro rule.
