With a week still to go on its early bird entry and over three months to the close of entry, the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta (VDLR) has received over 120 entries for what is expected again to be Ireland’s biggest regatta again in 2013.
Entries received to date are spread across a good mix of visiting clubs from Ireland and overseas with all of the visiting clubs represented bringing additional boats who have yet to enter so the estimation would be that VDLR numbers of visiting big boats will be up from 2011.
In another boost for regatta chairman Adam Winkelmann the entries received so far (see below for full list) are up at least 30€ on this time two years ago.
The J24’s will be holding their Eastern championships and will be racing within IRC 3 division. The hope is is that it will attract additional J24’s in advance of the Nationals and Worlds later in the summer at Howth YC.
