Nieulargo - the first to enter the O'Leary Insurance Group Sovereign's Cup 2021 © afloat.ie

In less than two weeks since registration opened for the O'Leary Insurance Group Sovereign's Cup 2021 30 entries were received.

The speed at which the entries have come in is best exemplified by the example of Denis and Annamarie Murphy entry of Nieulargo which was received within an hour of registration opening. In this year's Sovereign's Cup Nieulargo will race in the Coastal Fleet where they hope to build on their stand-out off-shore success in 2020 when they won both the KYC Fastnet race and the inaugural Cork 450 race.

These early 30+ entries, received more than five months before the start of the event on June 23rd, have been welcomed by Regatta Director Anthony O'Neill as he and his organising committee rolls out its revised format Covid-19 compliant event.

The Entry List may be viewed here.

As the list shows, there are some very capable boats already entered in the Coastal Class. Among them is RIYC's, Solent based Ker 40+ ARABELLA entered by Niall Dowling. He is very familiar with these waters, having won the 2018 Round Ireland Race in his then Ker 43 BARAKA GP. George Sisk's WOW will be in the mix as will the Patsy Burke/Lemass/Rigley PRIMA FORTE. These boats, along with the Kinsale boats already entered will ensure that this fleet will be hotly contested. John Murphy's J109 OUTRAJEOUS returns to defend the Class IRC Class 1 title which he and his team won in the 2019 Sovereign's Cup.

As communicated in December this year's event has a target number of 50 boats, this is due to the potential uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions that may be required at the time of the event.

All boat owners who intend entering the event are encouraged to do so as soon as possible, especially considering the strong number of entries received to date.

Enter here to qualify for the Early Bird Entry draw. The Early Bird Entry cut-off is 14th February and a draw will take place for a €200 Kinsale Good Food Circle voucher for all entries received by that date.
