With entries filling fast the ICRA Cruiser Racer National Championships at the Royal St George Yacht Club, look set up to be a huge success (81 entries as previously reported by Afloat.ie here). The championship which will be sailed from the 7th to 9th of June is open to all Cruiser Racers with an IRC or Echo handicap. As ‘lift-ins’ happen around the country this April, the ICRAs look like the extra event that many are set to add to their racing calendar.

Underpinning the excellent ‘on-the-water’ race management led by David Lovegrove PRO, the Royal St George have announced their social programme for the event. With variety in mind, the sailors will be treated to a wide spread of great food from dawn to dusk. Breakfast will be available each morning and every evening and you can choose from a quick bite to a casual dinner. All efforts are being made to have a core focus on keeping all the sailors in one place, enhancing the party atmosphere and creating great opportunities to swap stories and connect with fellow sailors.

New Royal St George, Operations Manager House, Jamie Egan will have the event under his watchful eye and brings huge experience with him having run all the events and catering at the St Stephens Green & Hibernian Club. The George has always had the reputation for the best parties and the ICRAs promises the same! Over 100 volunteers have been mobilised for this event which aims to make the experience for the racers seamless both afloat and ashore.
