Saturday 4 July marks the start of the 2020 Fingal Cruiser Challenge with a mini coastal race starting from Howth pier, with the gun at 10am.
Howth Yacht Club intends to start all boats off together and the fleet will be racing under HPH handicap only.
This is the third year of the revamped Fingal Series and will feature a combination of four mini-coastal races and the Lambay Race.
The series is intended to encourage keelboat owners, both racers and non-racers, to participate in some or all of the challenges that we can fit into our shortened season.
The mini coastal races are hoped to be attractive to boats with short-handed or less experienced crews, while providing close racing for those who like to be at the front.
The Notice of Race and entry form for the series are available online.
As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the Aqua Two-Handed Challenge returns to Howth later in July, with a wider array of classes welcome.
Meanwhile, club racing starts tomorrow (Tuesday 30 June) for the one-designs at HYC, as was confirmed last week. Entries can still be submitted HERE.
