The Sailing Instructions for the upcoming Sovereign's Cup are now available on the website here.

As it stands the Coastal Fleet is the largest of the four fleets which will take to the water on Wednesday. This fleet is looking very competitive with the winner, Nieulargo, and second place, Freya, of the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle taking on Samatom, Searcher, Hot Cookie and Jump Juice amongst others.

In IRC the J109's look set to spend the four days battling it out in Class 1. Finbarr O'Regan's Artful Dodjer is new to this fleet and had a very strong D to D race. However, sponsor Anthony O'Leary is hoping to cause an upset in his customised 1720, while Altair, Chancer, Alpaca and Ruth are all contenders is this class.

New to Class 2 is the J80 of O'Sullivan/O'Regan called No Notions. This has been performing very competitively in KYC club racing. They are up against the Half Tonners and Kieran Collin's Coracle VI so there should be some extremely competitive racing.

There are three Quarter Tonners in Class 3 who will taking on the local boats, Luas, Swift and Toro Loco.

In White Sail 1 James Matthews in his newly acquired Jeanneau 49, Fiscala, is hoping to put his stamp on the division.

White Sail 2 also has a newcomer. The Forde/Good partnership are entering the Ballad of Kilmac, their recent acquisition - an Albin Ballad.
