ICRA Statement on Ireland's 2016 Commodore's Cup Team

5th May 2016
ICRA has been unable to put a team together for July's Commodore's Cup in Cowes ICRA has been unable to put a team together for July's Commodore's Cup in Cowes

The Irish Cruiser Racing Association (ICRA) Commodore's Cup team manager Norbert Reilly has issued the following statement on Ireland's participation efforts in the 2016 Commodore's Cup regatta.

'Despite the efforts of all concerned ICRA regrets to announce that it has not been possible to find a sponsor for the Team’s third boat. We have had excellent partners in working to put the Team together and we had two top boats. It is unfortunate in that it appears this may be the last year of three boat teams and Ireland were considered as favourites to retain the cup.

ICRA is still prepared to consider applications to put together a Training Team and suggests that boats with a number of young crew aboard would be ideal as they will get world class experience without the pressure of entering as the event favourites'.
