Laser racing is back! After a long absence from top-level racing, the Irish Laser Association has staged two highly successful events in the last three weeks with the third event slated for 17/18 July.

The ILCA Masters Championships in May at the RStGYC in Dun Laoghaire attracted a fleet of 63 ILCA sailors and the ILCA Ulster Championships recently hosted by CAYC in Whitehead hosted 56 boats.

On the weekend of 17/18 July, the 2021 ILCA Connaught Championships will be hosted by Wexford Harbour Boat & Tennis club and will be limited to a maximum of 100 sailors. With many top sailors returning from international events and the recent success of the Ulsters, it is expected that the cap of 100 sailors could indeed be reached. Entries close on 12th July and no late entries will be accepted.
