Those wishing to take part are expected to leave the marina on time to ensure they can make Rathmullan for a Midday start. I suggest an 10:45am departure to ensure an assembly near the pier. Note high water is 9:22am.
Further instructions will be available on the race day. There may be extended or curtailed racing depending on the conditions.
Post racing on Monday there will be a parade of sail from the vicinity of Kinnegar navigation mark toward and passed the pier. It is hoped all boats will participate.
For some of the newer boats in the fleet a possibility of a white sail fleet for those not wishing to race but wish to do a lap of a course on all or some of the above days but more especially on Monday then please let any member of the race team know.
