Preparations for championship sailing are well under way in Kinsale for the O'Leary Life Sovereigns Cup 26th to 29th June.

With almost 70 entries the O'Leary Life Sovereigns Cup definitely has the X factor, Conor Doyles XP 50 Freya, George Sisk's XP 44 WOW and Robert Rendell's Samatom XC45 are all competing in the Coastal Fleet.

In the IRC fleet you have D-Tox, Dux and Alpacha, all very competitive boats plus Dux is a previous Winner of the Sovereigns Cup. Add in the J109's and a strong half-ton fleet you can be guaranteed that there will be close quarter racing.

With the 1720 European Championships and the Dragon Irish National Championship taking place out on the sportsboat course and the White Sail Fleet on their own course the waters between the Old Head and the Sovereign Islands will provide quite a spectacle of sailing.

Early Bird 2 closing date is April 26th so enter here.
