Entries closed yesterday for the Sigma 33 Class UK and Irish Championships 2018 on Dublin Bay this weekend.

The Royal St. George Yacht Club organisers have confirmed 23 entries, being 161 competitors from five countries.

Racing takes place from Friday to Sunday with ten races scheduled over the three days, all under the watchful eye of International Race Officer David Lovegrove.

There are 15 visiting boats from 13 visiting clubs and eight local boats and in looking at the quality of the visitors it is clear that many of them could achieve a podium finish. It would certainly be difficult to pick a winner. It all adds up to a competitive weekend on the water Sigmas.

There'll be a full house for the Championship dinner in the Royal St George Yacht Club on Saturday evening where the guest speaker is Tim Goodbody, a Sigma 33 champion, who needs no introduction to the fleet.
