Taking a glance at the list of entries table published on the DMYC website, the Race Officer is going to have his hands full with the Laser Radial /ILCA 6 fleet when racing starts this weekend in the Viking Marine Frostbite Challenge in Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

With entries currently at 110, DMYC intends to enforce the 120 limit cap on entries, at least for Series 1.

It follows on from a buoyant early entry as Afloat reported here

There are 38 Radials, 20 4.7s and 14 full rigs entered as the Laser again proves its enduring appeal during the pandemic at least. 

"We will see how the participation level compares to the entries. We expect there will be some disappointed regular winter dinghy sailors, but “you snooze and you lose”, organiser Neil Colin told Afloat.

In other big turnouts, the Fireballs who host the World Championships on Lough Derg next summer have 14 boats entered and the new RS Aero class has eight.
