Sunday June 9th sees the return of the popular and novel Kish Solo / Two Handed Race, aimed at both the regular Dublin Bay racers, and non racers alike. The event offers a challenge of seamanship to all sailors, as well as the challenge of navigating a course to and manoeuvring around the lighthouse structure, in the river like tidal conditions.
Last year’s solo category was dominated by Ruffian sailors, with many managing to set the kite during the race. The event is open to all keelboats with an ECHO certificate, who comply with Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) safety standards.
The club will have several support craft along the route and take a cautious view on the weather conditions on the day, to ensure safety is paramount.
Entry forms and the NOR are available from the office in the DMYC on the West Pier.
