This morning's Dun Laoghaire Viking Marine Coastal Race (Re-Boot) course has drawn a potent fleet of ISORA 19 boats that includes former champions Mojito (Peter Dunlop & Victoria Cox) from North Wales and reigning champions Rockabill VI (Paul O'Higgins). The entry list is below and the fleet previewed here.

This morning's race that will be sailed in light to medium  west to south-west winds marks the start of the 2020 offshore season with a course beginning and ending off Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The fleet start off Dun Laoghaire Outfall Buoy at 0955 and leave a Dublin Bay Virtual Mark to port before heading for Bennett and then the Killiney Outfall buoy. From there the boats will round the Mugling to Port and finish between Dun Laoghaire's Pier Heads. Follow the fleet on the Tracker below.
