100 Enter DMYC's King of the Bay Challenge Tomorrow

10th June 2016
100 Enter DMYC's King of the Bay Challenge Tomorrow

The DMYC say a late surge in entries means nearly 100 boats will race for their King of the Bay Challenge tomorrow, offering the cruisers a semi–coastal race and the dinghies a combination of a pursuit race and a standard handicap race. The on line entry system shuts down at 22.00 hours, so some time left this evening.

The question of whether a foiling moth can catch an IDRA with a forty two minute head start, after the IDRA has raced eighty three minutes will be answered. Who wins the Tortoise or the Hare ?

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
