Howth Yacht Club's traditional Key Capital Private Spring Warmer Sailing Series at Howth Yacht Club will run over two consecutive Saturdays with four Windward /Leeward races, starting on Saturday, 1st April with cranes and storage all included in the regatta entry fee.

There are starts for Cruisers 1, 2 & 3, SB20’s, J24’s, Puppeteers, Squibs and J80s. 'It’s a fantastic way to start the season and to get your crews back into full race mode, ' says HYC organiser Daragh Sheridan.

As last year, there will be particularly strong competition in Class two. The SB20s will also be looking to get in some time on the water with their Eastern Championships also being held in Howth later in April. More information in the notice of race downloadable below.

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.
