The Volvo Round Ireland Yacht race is Ireland’s premier offshore race, and the second longest race in the Royal Ocean Racing Club calendar (700+ miles). The first race took place in 1980 with only sixteen boats. Since then, held biennially, the fleet has grown steadily, attracting a record 64 entrants from all over the world and ranging from small yachts to high performance catamarans.
We bring together a mixed crew and focus on a robust training schedule to ensure we are competitive and safe when we hit the start line. Crew members range from those who have lifted silverware at previous events to those who've never sailed offshore before and everything in between.
