There is a distinctly international flavour to this year's Etchells National Championships sponsored by Euro Car Parks at Howth Yacht Club next weekend (August 14th & 15th), which is hardly surprising with the World Championships taking place at the same venue a week later. Fourteen entries from the USA (3), Australia (5) and UK (6) will be joined by local boats for the three-day event.

Among the major contenders will be America's Cup legend John Bertrand, fellow Australian and former World Champion Peter McNeill and leading American Argyle Campbell from Newport Harbour YC. Ante Razmilovic, from Royal Hong Kong YC, a regular visitor to Howth and the defending champion, will be another one to watch as the overseas crews familiarise themselves with the Howth waters ahead of the big event starting on August 23rd.

Leading the local challenge will be Dan O'Grady on 'Kootamundra Wattle', Richard & David Burrows on 'Matatu Dubh', Simon Knowles on 'Jabberwocky' and Laura Dillon on 'Key Capital' and their respective crews, all from the host club. The three-day event involves 6 races on windward-leeward courses and the race officer will be David Lovegrove who will also be the PRO for the forthcoming Worlds.
