Two weeks to go to the first 1720 regatta to be held out of Monkstown Bay and Eleven entrants have risen from their wintery hibernation to challenge for the Spring Splash Cup.

The schedule for the regatta is set to test every rule within the Racing Rules of Sailing with Fleet, Match and Team Racing planned over the three weekends.  Another Trio to the class will see three new owners make their debut to the racecourse in their new toys. Wietse Buwalda of Salve Marine has joined the class as well as two boats from the Cork Institute of Technology in conjunction with the National Maritime College of Ireland. We look forward to seeing them enjoy the 1720’s and wish them fast sailing.

Racing will commence on the 7th, 14th & 20th of April with a Barbeque and season opening Party on the eve of the 20th. All 1720 crews in the vicinity are welcome to join in the fun on and off the water and can contact John Crotty johnc@primeline.ie for any further details.
