Eugene F Collins supporting the Round Ireland Yacht Race 2014
24 June 2014
Eugene F Collins is delighted to be part of the 2014 Round Ireland Yacht Race by sponsoring the Eugene F Collins / Amazing Grace and her team.
The Round Ireland Yacht Race, now in its 34th year, is Ireland’s premier offshore sailing race, held every two years by Wicklow Sailing Club in association with the Royal Ocean Racing Club. The 704 nautical mile course is simply to leave Ireland & her islands to starboard. It departs Wicklow, this Saturday 28th June at 2pm.
The Round Ireland Yacht Race promises some of the most challenging conditions that offshore racing has to offer, from the tidal Irish Sea to the open Atlantic ocean. 35 yachts are set to compete in this year’s race, from France, England, Wales, the Isle of Man and Ireland.
Best of luck to Bren Farrell, Brian O’Sullivan & all the RIYC / TBSC team aboard the Eugene F Collins / Amazing Grace.
