#1720 – The popular West Cork sailing Village of Baltimore will next month play host to the 1720 National Championships which will be sailed in the picturesque setting of Roaring water Bay. The event is sponsored by Danske Bank. The Cork harbour 1720 Sportsboat fleet is still going strong in Ireland and with boats travelling down from Dublin, Crosshaven and even the UK to join the large local fleet already based in Baltimore.

The 2015 1720 National Championships will be organised by the Baltimore Sailing Club (BSC) in conjunction with the 1720 Sportsboat Class Association from Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th June 2015.

This year's event looks to be attracting around some 20 entries, a weekend ahead of the ICRA Nationals and Sovereign's Cup Kinsale. As well as the great racing agenda,  the 1720 class say there are good après-sail activities planned for the evenings including a big BBQ on the last night at the recently extended and renovated clubhouse of BSC. NOR and entry forms available for download below.
