#lambay – Howth Yacht Club is forecasting a bumper turnout for its Lambay Race. With less than three weeks to go before Howth Yacht Club's annual regatta, the Lambay Races are already attracting strong entries and event chairman James Markey says that this year's race around Fingal's historic island promises to be one of the largest attended in recent years. In addition to the usual amount of visitors (normally accounting for a third of all competing yachts), the extra fleet of 'old gaffers' and the favourable timing of this year's regatta, just a week before the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race, will also be attractive to many more coastal and offshore sailors.
