Kingstown 200 - A Gathering of Classic Boats
When?Start time: Thursday 12:00 (06 July)
End time: Sunday 19:00 (09 July)
There could well be as many opinions as to what constitutes a true classic or traditional boat as there are owners of these often highly individual craft!
As part of the celebration of the Bicentenary of Dún Laoghaire Harbour – where the first stone was officially laid by the Viceroy of Ireland on 31st May 1817 - the Volvo Dún Laoghaire Regatta 2017 will be including a Classics, Traditional and Old Gaffers Association section. This will, in addition to putting extra emphasis on older classes already regularly involved (such as the Glens, the Dublin Bay Mermaids, the Howth 17 Footers Association, the IDRA 14s and the Water Wags), be extending a welcome to older boats of other types, and to classic classes from Ireland and around the Irish Sea.
