Irish Multihull

The Irish Multihull Association are holding their Irish National Championships on Saturday 30th June & Sunday 1st July at Galway Bay Sailing Club.  It is coinciding with the Volvo Ocean Race stopover and the VOR festival.  We are planning on heading across with our boat and would be able to take another 2 boats if anyone is interested. 

 Galway Bay Sailing Club are running two days of windward leeward Championship racing (with the provision of a third day long distance race, if the travelling boats want it).  There will also be a slalom race back to the club to showcase the multihull fleet.  

 Entry for boats travelling to the UK will be 1 euro, camping is free and free transport to and from the Volvo Ocean Race village.  There will be individual race prizes as well as the overall Championship and entertainment every night.

 All multihull are welcome and we have a great spread of fleets from F18s to the Dart 16s.  There is also a number of Dart 16s available to borrow, if anyone wants to fly in, race and fly home.

 Galway was voted the top stopover of the 2008-09 VOR, with 60,000 people welcoming the boats home.  This is a fantastic opportunity to attract a lot of publicity for the multihull.  We had press shots alongside the VOR boats and great coverage last time.

 If you at all interested, please get in touch with me either at cat.gunning2809@gmail .com or on 07527628506.
