Dun Laoghaire Regatta - Eight visiting IRC Zero entries to line up
Fri, 12 Apr 2013
The Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta, set for July on Dublin Bay, will see eight of nine entries in IRC Zero from overseas. The exception is the defending IRC champion, the Howth based Mills 36, Crazy Horse skippered by Norbert Reilly.
In IRC 1, 50% of entries received are visitors to Dublin Bay and in another boost for bay racing, 25 boats in the overall fleet are overseas entries with a good number still to enter, it is estimated.
29 clubs are currently represented with boats coming from Scotland, Wales, UK, Ireland and the North of Ireland.
The VDLR organisers have extended the early bird discount to the biennial regatta until the 22 April but already 250 entries have been received for an event still three months away.
