The Liebherr Cruiser Nationals to be held in Dun Laoghaire from May from May 21st to 23rd and hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club, has already attracted very strong support. ICRA are delighted to report that already entries are almost at the 100 mark and expected to reach record numbers despite the current economic environment.
The formula for the event will be a three-day championship with seven races. There will be a variety of tight Windward/Leeward and Olympic type round the cans courses in two separate specially designated areas.
The combination of the National Championships title at stake and an excellent social programme ashore has proved to be a great success. The fact that the event rotates locations has also added to its stature. With the excellent racing and onshore entertainment planned by the Host Club, the Royal St. George, and in conjunction with the strong sponsors, Liebherr, The Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, and Dubarry Footwear and Clothing, a very special festival of sailing plus a strong welcome for all competitors is assured.
The inaugural ICRA Corinthian Cup for non-spinnaker boats is also being well supported with 17 entries already recorded. This event will be sailed on a separate course.
Early entry is encouraged so that final Class Bands can be fairly decided.
