Sail-World.com : The Sovereigns Cup 2011 - 22nd to 25th June

The Sovereigns Cup 2011 - 22nd to 25th June

Irish Sailing Association
Entries are coming in at a good pace for The Sovereign’s Cup that takes place from 22nd to 25th June 2011 in the outer harbour of Kinsale, Co Cork.

'We are delighted with the entry level to date and are now encouraging boats to enter The Sovereign’s Cup on our interactive website or by calling Kinsale Yacht Club directly on (021) 4773433. Already, skippers are beginning to plan their sailing events for the year and we hope that they will favourably consider us here in Kinsale,' said Gary Horgan, Regatta Director.

'Additionally, this year, the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle race and ICRA Championships in Cork just before The Sovereign’s Cup should act as good feeders as boats will be down south. As well as the excellent sailing conditions, race management and social programme ashore, there is a good discounted entry fee for the first 100 entries, which is already proving very attractive to entrants. Also, we are encouraging people to start thinking about their travel and accommodation plans and are delighted that the Cork Swansea ferry will enable more sailors to access Kinsale easily from the UK,' he added.

The Sovereign’s Cup was established in 1995 as and has been a very successful and hugely popular cruiser regatta. The biennial event attracts over 140 boats from all over Ireland and the UK who compete for the prestigious Sovereign’s Cup for best all round score in IRC and The Portcullis Trophy for best progressive handicap.

There are many Classes for entry; including Class 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and two White Sails classes. Also, the Quarter Ton Class Championships will be taking place during the Sovereign’s Cup, bringing many new visitors to Kinsale from the South of England and Wales in particular.

According to Ian Travers of the Sovereign’s Cup Committee at KYC, interest has been phenomenal and he has received plenty of calls from UK and Irish owners expressing their interest.

'Also, I have received confirmation that a quarter tonner named ‘Black Fun’ is to be shipped from New Zealand to Europe this year and is intent on making it to Kinsale for the Sovereign’s Cup! We are confident that there will be around 25-30 quarter tonners participating in the Sovereign’s Cup this year,' said Ian Travers.
