Welcome to the 2024 Kinsale Yacht Club Inishtearaght race sponsored by Matthews of Cork. This year is the second year that the race is running and following very positive feedback on the race in 2022 we are confident that it will prove to be a great race. The race will start in Kinsale on Friday 24th May and will take the fleet along the coast of West Cork and Kerry, around Inishtearagh and return to finish in Kinsale. The race is approximately 240nm long and in 2022 the fastest time was set by Aurelia from the Royal St. George Yacht Club in a time of 1 day 9 hours 57 minutes.

Inishtearaght is the western most of the Blasket Islands and hence the western most island of Ireland.

The race is kindly sponsored by Matthews of Cork.
