STARTS WEDNESDAY 9TH JUNE 2021
The next edition of the biennial offshore race will start on Wednesday 9th, June 2021 at 2pm (14.00 hrs). We welcome Volvo Cars and Billy Naughton Motors of Tralee again as the title sponsor for the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race and would like to thank them for their continuous support. We also continue our wonderful partnership with the Dingle Skellig Hotel.
The Notice of Race was published in early January and is available to download on this site.
The 2021 280-mile race will start, as usual, from the National Yacht Club and the race – now part of the Royal Ocean Racing Club calendar – will be limited to a 50 boat fleet following the success of the 2019 edition that attracted a record 43, including the biggest ever entrant, Windfall that set a new course record. Previous entrants will be offered priority up to a maximum of 50 entrants. As of March 1st 2021 we now have 47 Entries confirmed.
We follow the Covid 19 public health situation closely and will issue further updates as the situation develops and restrictions in place are clearer for the race dates. We will consider all options available once we have more information and understanding of what the options are based on the guidance and advice from government and national sports bodies including the ISA as we approach the time.
The next update here will be after April 5th.
