#KishRace - The Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club has announced details of its annual Kish Race for 2017.

This year’s race in Dublin Bay to and from the Kish Bank Lighthouse offshore will be held on Sunday 24 September.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the DMYC has been hosting this yearly event since the early 1980s, beginning as a single-handed affair but more recently becoming a two-handed race for cruiser class boats under the ECHO standard.

The Notice of Race and entry form are both available now on the DMYC website.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
