The RCYC Autumn League may yet decide the winner of ICRA Boat of the Year 2021
Thanks to wins at the ICRA National Championships and Calves Week, Greystones based Kaya currently sits on top of the ICRA BoTY rankings on 10.5 points.
The next 3 boats behind her have each gained 9 points in markedly different ways. Quarter Tonner Snoopy dominated Class 3 at the ICRA National Championships and placed 2nd in Calves Week. Cork based Nieulargo won the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle and then placed 2nd in Class at Sovereigns Cup. 2019 Boat of the Year, Rockabill VI’s results include Overall Winner in the ISORA Coastal Series together with 2nd place in the D2D and DBSC Thursday series.
Of the remaining boats still in contention, HYC’s J109 Storm and white sailor, Prince of Tides both sit on 7.5 points.
In 2019 the HYC Autumn League sealed the deal for Rockabill VI. In 2021 it could yet be the RCYC Autumn League that nudges Nieulargo ahead of the Kaya for final honours.
Full scores are HERE and below.
