Denis Kiely has announced his resignation as National Handicapping Coordinator for cruiser racing.  However, the sailing fraternity will not be at a total loss as Denis will continue as Hon  Secretary of the Irish Cruiser Racing Association (ICRA) and also his association with SCORA (South Coast Offshore Racing Association).

Denis has worked closely with Bob McPherson the renowned developer of the Sail 100 handicap system that is universally used and in recent times he has collaborated with McPherson in fine tuning the system specifically for the Irish Cruiser racing scene.

While hoping to enjoy some well deserved time sailing  his beloved Formula 28 after some two decades in office, he will nonetheless, when necessary, be available to advise his successor and ease his/her path into this extremely important position in sailing.
