Howth Yacht Club's Lambay Race on Target for Big Entry
Howth Yacht Club’s annual regatta – the Lambay Race – on Saturday 12th June is on target to reach last year’s entry of some 140 boats, according to Regatta Chairman James Markey.

“Our entries to date have broken the 50 mark,” he said “which is ahead of the numbers at the corresponding time in previous years. Past experience tells us that there will be a surge in entries in the days leading up to the event.”

The Lambay Race, sponsored this year by Electro Automation Group, will provide racing for 12 sailing classes, with the 31.7s back with a separate class start and the J109s also racing for a scratch result within Class 1.

An Offshore Committee Boat will start the races for Classes 1, 2, 3, First 31.7 and two White Sail Cruiser divisions. On the inshore course, one-design classes include Etchells, Puppeteers, Ruffian 23s, E-Boats, Squibs and Howth 17 Footers.

The ‘Lambay Lady Trophy’ will be awarded to the class winner with the largest time differential over the runner-up.
