With only a couple of months to go before the BMW J24 Europeans, the event planning is shaping up very nicely, with a steady increase in entries (now from five countries) and an anticipated fleet in excess of 30 boats.
HYC is ramping up for the event with various teams getting ready for the diverse activities required for such a major regatta.
The Measurement Team will shortly have its checklist prepared for distribution to competitors so they are fully aware of what's involved and don't have any surprises when they arrive in Howth.
The Social Team has developed a programme of activities to keep competitors entertained during the event that will include a traditional ceili night. In addition to dining in the Club, there will be opportunities to sample the fine fare from some of the many top-class restaurants and pubs in the town.
In this regard, local businesses are currently preparing special offers for J24 Europeans sailors, details of which will be available at registration.
