Irish RS Fleet Publish Six Fixture Dates for 2012


#RS – There’s a busy year afloat in prospect for the rapidly expanding Irish RS400 and RS200 dinghy sailing fleets with six events scheduled for the 2012 season. A five event traveller series kicks off with the Inlands at Lough Ree on the 28th and 29th of April. The Nationals take place in Howth on the 17th-19th of August and the season rounds off with the Sprint Trophy series in Dun Laoghaire in October. For those who feel adventurous, the RS Eurocup takes place on Lake Garda in July. 

Next season also sees the RS Feva’s combine with the RS400’s and RS200’s for several events. In addition to the racing events, a number of coaching sessions will be run at various clubs throughout the year.
