The Irish Team Racing Nationals will be sailed in Dun Laoghaire on 12th and 13th November, at the Royal St George YC.

On the Friday evening there will be a team racing clinic run by IUs Peter Johnson (GBR) and John Pratt (USA).

Please find below the NOR and an entry form. As there have been problems in recent years caused either by teams not showing up or by late entries we do require a deposit. Irish teams are requested to send a cheque to the Irish Team Racing Association. UK and other teams may pay by electronic transfer. Please contact me to arrange this.

2 points:

1) the age limit for the Youth competition is fixed so that the leading Youth team will be qualified for any international events in 2012. This is a consequence of our decision to move the Championship to  a date in November;

2) the entry fee may seem somewhat dearer than other events in Ireland. There are two good reasons for this:- Firstly, because, for the National championships, it is important to have a strong umpire team. There will be 2 umpire boats on each race, with an International umpire in each boat. Naturally, this increases costs. Secondly, the arrangements put in place for financing ITRA  and the development of team racing have not worked. Your Association is not in a position to subsidise the entry fee. ITRA will hold an AGM during the Championship to propose new arrangements.

Lookig forward to seeing you all in Dun Laoghaire

Hon Sec ITRA
