NYC to host the ICRA Nationals 2021

We are delighted to announce that the National Yacht Club was selected to host the ICRA Nationals 2021!

The NYC will host the three-day championships from May 28 to 30th 2021, just a week before the biennial offshore 2021 Dun Laoghaire to Dingle race.

The announcement was made by ICRA Commodore Richard Colwell at last weekend’s annual conference that attracted a turnout of 50 despite the storm warnings.
A fleet of up to 100 boats in four divisions is expected for the championships that last sailed in Dublin Bay in 2019 when hosted by the Royal St. George Yacht Club.
