Kinsale Yacht Club is delighted to confirm its intention to hold the O'Leary Insurance Group Sovereign's Cup 23rd to 26th June 2021.

Having considered the recent announcement on the easing of government restrictions and after consulting all stakeholders we have agreed that we can hold our reduced size Sovereign's Cup, said Regatta director Anthony O'Neill. We believe that there is a pent-up demand among all sailors to get back racing and that this year's event, albeit a more 'on the water' regatta, will cater very well for that demand.

We are very happy to be in the position that our early decision to plan for a smaller event with a target of 50 boats has now been proven to have been a prudent one. We acknowledge that while the government announcement last Friday has effectively given the 'green-light' to sailing in controlled situations that there still remains many uncertainties and challenges for event organisers. Not least among those are restrictions and measures that may be required ashore.

For that reason, a final decision on the level of social activity in Kinsale Yacht Club will not be made until closer to the event. We will be guided at that time by the guidelines in place with regards to numbers allowed at Events and Social Gatherings. If the expected clarifications/alterations to the guidelines do not allow for the use of our Club facilities then we are confident that participant's needs can be accommodated at the outdoor facilities of the Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in the town. In addition, all Hotels and Guesthouses will have indoor dining available for those participants who are residents.

All of us at Kinsale Yacht Club are working hard to provide the best possible racing in June.
