One of Ireland’s longest established sailing events, Howth Yacht Club’s Lambay Race – being run for the 116th time this year on Saturday 9th June – will be sponsored by Independent Trustee Company, one of the largest providers of self-administered pension structures in the country.
The ITC Lambay Race is expected to attract over 150 entries across 12 classes and Regatta Chairman James Markey is confident that another large fleet will contest the club’s annual regatta.
An Offshore Committee Boat will start the races for Classes 1, 2, 3, White Sail Cruisers (A and B fleets) and Shipman.
On the Inshore Course, the one-design classes racing are Etchells, Puppeteers, Ruffian 23s, E-Boats, Squibs and Howth 17 Footers.
As is tradition, the ‘Lambay Lady Trophy’ will be awarded to the class winner with the largest time differential over the runner-up.
“We are delighted,” said James Markey, “to have the support of Independent Trustee Company in running this year’s event, as the costs associated with running such events continue to rise year-on-year.”
