Offshore Selection Trials

Offshore Selection Trials


The 2020 Offshore World Championships is taking place in Valletta, Malta as part of the Rolex Middle Sea Race from 10-22 October 2020. Ireland has already secured an entry into the Mixed Two Person Event – one male and one female, which is a new event for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

Irish Sailing had planned to run a selection trials scheduled between 28 March and 5 April 2020 and centred around the Solo Guy Cotton Concarneau regatta in France. Due to restrictions around Covid-19 these trials have been forced to be rescheduled. We are now looking at options to run the selection trials in cooperation with the organisers of the Round Ireland Yacht Race due to start 20th June.

Further details around choice of boat and NOR will be published shortly. For further information contact Harry Hermon – harry@sailing.ie
