Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club (DMYC) has published the Notice of Race for the 2019 Edition of its annual Kish Race.
The round Kish and back race will take place on Sunday 22nd with the first gun at10.25 a.m.
Starting at the town's West Pier and racing to the Kish and back, it is a distance of approximately 28 km.
As Afloat reported in 2018, the last race saw Hot Cookie (Sunfast 3600 - John O’Gorman) leading to the Kish Lighthouse some 13.9 km out from Dun Laoghaire. An inside overtake at the mark by the bigger Eleuthera (Frank Whelan) saw them lead all the way to the finish. The reward for Hot Cookie (second on the water) was an overall win, on corrected time.
Race organiser Neil Colin says that 'as this is the “last major” in the Dublin Bay summer season before the lift out or winter racing, the club is looking forward to an enthusiastic entry'.
Handicapping will be based on ECHO Standard, giving those with revised ECHOs a good chance at the prizes.
