Volvo Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race – Starts On Wednesday 7th June 2023

Nov 18, 2022 | Sailing

The 2023 Volvo Dun Laoghaire to Dingle “D2D” Race will start from the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire on the afternoon of Wednesday June 7th, 2023.

The race is 270 miles along the East and South Coasts of Ireland and finishing in the wonderful and welcoming town of Dingle.

The race is regarded as the perfect mini offshore as it usually mixes varying weather conditions with a good test of boat and crew along the South coast of Ireland. Sailing Instructions include a fixed time limit to allow for a lively post-race function in the Dingle Skellig Hotel, and to provide certainty for travel planning for owners and crew.

The race is ORC Category 3 with Liferaft and AIS transponder.

The race counts as a qualifier for the RORC Fastnet Race and is timed to allow yachts to travel to Kinsale to participate in Sovereigns Week (21 – 24 June) and the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta (6 – 9 July).

The race also forms part of the Irish Sea Offshore Racing (ISORA) series which guarantees a strong racing fleet.

The fleet comprises yachts mostly in the 33 – 50 ft range with the race record of just over 24 hours (24 hours 48 minutes) currently held by the 94ft Southern Wind – Windfall.
