First time for multihulls, in Round Ireland 2016

The multihulls will compete against each other for a new race trophy and course record. Last May, Omani trimaran Musandam-Oman Sail set a new Ireland circumnavigation record of 1 day, 16 hours, 51 minutes and 57 seconds, but not in a 'race setting'.

The Round Ireland race record (for monohulls) is held by Mike Slade who completed the race in 2 days, 17 hours, 48 minutes and 47 seconds, in ICAP Leopard 3 in 2008.

Another 'first' for 2016 is a trophy for the best sailing school boat on corrected time. The race officially opens for entries in January but early expressions of interest can be registered at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
