summer, here they come!

Organisers at Wicklow Sailing Club have today announced their decision to postpone by two months the start of the biennial SSE Renewables Round Ireland Race due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

The new start date for the 704-mile race will be Saturday 22nd August 2020 subject to government guidelines.

“Even under the most optimistic scenario, our traditional start date of mid-June would not be possible,” commented Kyran O’Grady, Race Director at Wicklow Sailing Club. “However, we believe that there is a suitable late-Summer fixtures window that can still deliver a great race. We will keep updated guidelines under constant review as we plan for the new date.” More here.
