What a great start to the season…..
Variable winds and sunshine were the order of the day for KYC’s first Sunday of the Osean74 frostbite series. Please see the excellent report by Michele Kennelly on Afloat / KYC Facebook.

Don’t miss out - the cutoff for the EARLY BIRD reduced entry fee for the Sovereigns Cup is Friday 17th February. KYC boats that enter before this date will qualify for a 90% refund in the event that they are unable to compete.

The Cruiser Fleet are limbering up for the March League starting on Sunday 19th.  Be sure to have your registration & declaration, 2017 ECHO certificate and 2017 IRC certificates presented to Mathilde in the race office ( beforehand otherwise no result will be issued.  Seamus Caher is the Race Officer with FG 11.55.  The races will be “All In”. NOR and SI’s will be on soon. As always, Frank Godsell is the generous sponsor and there will be no entry fee.

The Matthews / Helly Hansen Spring Series starts on 9th April running over four weekends to Saturday 29th April. The NOR is available here with the SI’s to follow in March . Please note that (similar to March League) skipper’s must have registered and presented 2017 ECHO & IRC certificates with Mathilde in the race office ( prior to racing.

That’s it for now,
