The Royal Irish Yacht Club will provide full pre-race management facilities in Dun Laoghaire for larger yachts which are unable to berth in Wicklow Port to allow an historic expansion of the Round Ireland Yacht Race. The partnership means larger boats can now berth and enjoy full pre-race facilities in advance of the Race departure from Wicklow.
