20th February 2018
Last year's Dun Laoghaire Regatta had up to 20 entries including nine from the home waters and ten visitors from Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, the Isle of Man and local boats from Arklow and Waterford. A similar number are expected for this year's Class & Irish Championships at the Royal St.George Yacht Club in June Last year's Dun Laoghaire Regatta had up to 20 entries including nine from the home waters and ten visitors from Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, the Isle of Man and local boats from Arklow and Waterford.

The Sigma 33 class is 39–years–old this year and this June the Royal St. George Yacht Club will host the Class and Irish Championship, the first occasion the Dun Laoghaire Club has held these combined events.

'It's a great prospect for both the club, with all its experience of major events, and the class, which will be berthed on the clubs pontoons, making for a unique event', Class Captain Paddy Maguire told Afloat.ie

Despite the boats age, the class is very capable of drawing both the top sailors and fun sailors to its annual Championship in good numbers from June 22–24.

As Afloat.ie reported at the time here, Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta last year attracted 20 entries and similar entries are expected this June.

St.Patricks Day (17th March) will have an extra significance for Sigma 33 sailors next month as it is also the deadline for the closing of Early Bird entries at the discounted rate of €169.

All entries received will automatically be entered in a draw and one lucky entrant will have their entry fee refunded.

'It would be great to have a home town winner or a top 3 place which has not been possible in recent years since Tim Goodbody was a competitor', Maguire told Afloat.ie
